A compendium of the genus Acanthobothrium is presented, including figures from the literature. The present analysis yields 44 valid species. These are: aetiobatis, australis, batailloni, benedeni, bengalense, brachyacanthum, brevissime, cestracii, coronatum, crassicolle, dasybati, duiardini, floridensis, fogeli, gracile, heterodonti, hispidum, holorhini, ijimae, indicum, intermedium, latum, lilium, maculatum, magnum, mathiasi, micracantha, microcephalum, parviuncinatum, pearsoni, rajaebatis… 
A new species of Acanthobothrium van Beneden, 1849 (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from Rioraja castelnaui (Chondrichthyes: Rajoidei) in coastal waters of Argentina
TLDR
The new species, A. marplatensis, showed the greatest preference for chambers 2 and 3 of the eight chambers of the spiral intestine of the skate Rioraja castelnaui and was greater in spring and summer than in cold seasons.
Acanthobothrium Blanchard, 1848: diversidade filogenética das linhagens parasitas de arraias de água doce
TLDR
The results provide additionl evidence to support the idea that freshwater lineages of tetraphyllideans (as opposed to marine tetraphytideans) presents great intra-specific morphological variation and low host specificity.
FIVE NEW SPECIES OF ACANTHOBOTHRIUM (TETRAPHYLLIDEA: ONCHOBOTHRIIDAE) FROM THE FRESHWATER STINGRAY HIMANTURA CHAOPHRAYA (BATOIDEA: DASYATIDAE) IN MALAYSIAN BORNEO
TLDR
Five new species of Acanthobothrium (Tetraphyllidea: Onchobothriidae) are described from the spiral intestine of the Freshwater whipray, Himantura chaophraya, in the Kinabatangan River in Malaysian Borneo, marking the first report of AcAnthobothium from freshwater stingrays belonging to a family other than the Potamotrygonidae.
Five New Species of Acanthobothrium (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from Himantura uarnacoides (Myliobatiformes: Dasyatidae) in Malaysian Borneo
TLDR
Three of the 5 new species most closely resemble species parasitizing a congeneric stingray species also from Borneo; however, examination of the cestode faunas of additional Himantura species in this geographic region is needed before conclusions about the significance of these resemblances can be drawn.
FOUR NEW SPECIES OF ACANTHOBOTHRIUM (CESTODA: TETRAPHYLLIDEA) FROM THE WHIPTAIL STINGRAY DASYATIS BREVIS IN THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA, MEXICO
TLDR
Examination of the spiral intestines of 29 whiptail stingrays from 6 sites in the Gulf of California, México in 1993 and 1996 resulted in the discovery of 4 new species of Acanthobothrium, the first record of either of these genera of onchobothriid tapeworms from the gulf of California.
Intestinal Helminths of Freshwater Stingrays in Southeastern Peru, and a New Genus and Two New Species of Cestode

TLDR
The study suggests that the diversity and host specificity of the cestodes in potamotrygonid stingrays may be greater than previously thought.
A NEW SPECIES OF ACANTHOBOTHRIUM VAN BENEDEN, 1849 (EUCESTODA: TETRAPHYLLIDEA: ONCHOBOTHRIIDAE) IN DASYA TIS LONGUS GARMAN (CHONDRICHTHYES: MYLIOBATIFORMES: DASYATIDIDAE) FROM
TLDR
During the course of an inventory of the parasite fauna of fish from Chamela Bay, Jalisco State, Mexico, numerous specimens of a new species of Acanthobothrium inhabiting Dasyatis longus Garman are collected, adding to the understanding of the evo- lution of Neotropical freshwater stingrays (family Potamotry- gonidae).
Four new species of Acanthobothrium van Beneden, 1849 (Cestoda: Onchoproteocephalidea) from the spotted skate, Raja straeleni Poll, off the Western Cape, South Africa.
TLDR
The examination of eight spotted skates, Raja straeleni Poll, resulted in the discovery of four new species of Acanthobothrium, which represent the first species with postovarian testes from the southern Atlantic Ocean, and were incorporated into the category classification system established by Ghoshroy and Caira in 2001.
A new species of Acanthobothrium van Beneden, 1849 (Eucestoda:Tetraphyllidea: Onchobothriidae) in Dasyatis longus Garman (Chondrichthyes:Myliobatiformes:Dasyatididae) from Chamela Bay, Jalisco, Mexico.
TLDR
A new species of Acanthobothrium in Dasyatis longus from Chamela Bay, Jalisco, Mexico, is a member of a presumed clade of species diagnosed by being anapolytic or nearly so, providing support for the hypothesized Pacific marine ancestry of Neotropic freshwater stingrays and raises the possibility that the Neotropical freshwater stingray may not be monophyletic.
Two new species of Acanthobothrium Beneden, 1849 (Tetraphyllidea: Onchobothriidae) from horn sharks in the Gulf of California, Mexico
TLDR
Two new tapeworm species are known only from the Gulf of California and the apparent host-specificity of both new species should be viewed with caution until a greater sample of host individuals of both species can be examined.
