Taxonomy and phylogeny of the buccal-attaching Cymothoidae (Crustacea: Isopoda) of Australia
The redescription of Glossobius impressus (Say, 1818), new to Australian and southern African waters is contributed to theRedescription of Ceratothoa contracta (Miers, 1880), Cer atothoa novaezelandiae Filhol, 1885 and Ceratotheroa gaudichaudii (Milne Edwards, 1840) as species inquirenda.
New records of Riggia cryptocularis (Isopoda: Cymothoidae) parasitizing two Odontostilbe species (Characiformes: Characidae) in the Paraguay River Basin, Paraguay, with a review of Riggia host species
These findings increase the known records of R. cryptocularis from two to six and expand their range by over 750 km, and the addition of four Odontostilbe hosts with no other recorded hosts suggests this isopod may actively select Odontstilbe.
Habitat and host associations of the fish‐burrowing parasite Artystone minima (Cymothoidae: Isopoda) in eastern Amazonia
Parasite presence was significantly associated with reduced weight (standardized for length) of female Nannostomus beckfordi in the wet season, indicating a significant association of parasites with host reproductive capacity.
Redescription of the fish-parasitic isopod Cymothoa ianuarii Schioedte & Meinert, 1884 and further records of C. excisa Perty, 1833 and C. oestrum (Linnaeus, 1758) (Isopoda: Cymothoida: Cymothoidae) from Brazil
This species is mainly characterized by adult females with cephalon with conspicuous eyes and not deeply immersed in pereonite 1, pereonites 5-6 much wider than 4, pleotelson twice as wide as long and pleopods 1-5 decreasing in size.
Life Cycle and Life History Strategies of Parasitic Crustacea
Different parasitic life strategies are described including four new life cycles: complex rebrooding, micro-male, mesoparasite and prey-predator transfer, and how displaced parasites and superinfections may partly elucidate life cycles.
Parasitism by isopods in sandy beach fish assemblages: role of urbanization and environmental characteristics
Overall, the results indicate that the surf-zones have low parasite infestation, yet, they suggest that anthropic effects such as urbanization may enhance the prevalence of isopod parasitism.
Shape of attachment structures in parasitic isopodan crustaceans: the influence of attachment site and ontogeny
This study presents the first comprehensive description and photographs of specialised appendage morphology of immatures of Ceratothoa, as well as the first detailed micrographs of embryonic stages of Cymothoidae, and the first lateral and ventral views of immature stages of the examined species.
Two new host records of the cymothoid isopods from Rameswaram Island, southeast coast of India
For the first time, cymothoid isopods Nerocila sundaica and NerocILA poruvae infested on the two new host fish species viz., Eleutheronema tetradactylum and Setipinna taty , which were collected from Rameswaram Island, Southeast coast of India.
Immune response of teleost fish to helminth parasite infection.
The components that participate in the innate and adaptive immune responses of teleost fish that have so far been described are presented in order to summarize the defenses that these hosts have recourse to, in combating different groups of helminth parasites.
