Nucleotide sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacers (ITS) were used to confirm morphological identification of Gyrodactylus species in Fennoscandia. Three pairs of morphologically similar or cryptic species are compared in this study. G. branchicus Malmberg, 1964 and G. rarus Wegener, 1910, hosted by the sticklebacks Gasterosteus… CONTINUE READING
