Partial (DNA) sequences are presented for 2 nuclear (18S and 28S rRNA genes) and 2 mitochondrial (12S rRNA and ND1 genes) loci for 5 species belonging to the Schistosoma japonicum, S. sinensium and S. indicum groups of Asian Schistosoma. Fresh field isolates were collected and cultured for the following taxa: S. incognitum (S. indicum group, central Thailand), S. mekongi (S. japonicum group, southern Laos), S. ovuncatum (S. sinensium group, northern Thailand), S. spindale (S. indicum group… 
First report of Schistosoma sinensium infecting Tupaia belangeri and Tricula sp. LF
Phylogenetic relationships of snails of the genera Oncomelania and Tricula inferred from the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene
TLDR
The Schistosoma japonicum group and S. sinensium utilize intermediate snail hosts belonging to the genera Oncomelania and Tricula (Gastropoda: Pomatiopsidae) and the phylogenetic tree obtained in this study indicates that O. hupensis subspecies fell into four distinct clades.
DNA-Sequence Variation Among Schistosoma mekongi Populations and Related Taxa; Phylogeography and the Current Distribution of Asian Schistosomiasis
TLDR
The aim is to confirm the identity of the species involved at each known focus of Mekong schistosomiasis transmission, to examine historical relationships among the populations and related taxa, and to provide data for use (a priori) in further studies of the origins, radiation, and future dispersal capabilities of S. mekongi.
THE PHYLOGENETICS OF TRICULINE SNAILS (RISSOOIDEA:POMATIOPSIDAE) FROM SOUTH-EAST ASIA AND SOUTHERN CHINA: HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY AND THE TRANSMISSION OF HUMAN SCHISTOSOMIASIS
TLDR
The data confirmed the congeneric status of N. aperta and N. burchi; the implications of this for the choice of historical biogeographical model for the Pachydrobiini are discus sed.
The phylogeny of the Schistosomatidae based on three genes with emphasis on the interrelationships of Schistosoma Weinland, 1858
TLDR
The principal findings are that Ornithobilharzia and AustrobilHarzia form a sister group to the Schistosoma; mammalian schistosomes appear paraphyletic and 2 TrichobilharZia species, T. ocellata and T. szidati, seem to be synonymous.
Orientobilharzia turkestanicum is a member of Schistosoma genus based on phylogenetic analysis using ribosomal DNA sequences.

Molecular phylogenetic position of Schistosoma sinensium in the genus Schistosoma
TLDR
Trees inferred from DNA sequences place S. sinensium as sister to the S. japonicum group and suggest a basal position in the clade utilizing snails of the family Pomatiopsidae.
Molecular phylogenetics of the four Schistosoma species groups determined with partial 28S ribosomal RNA gene sequences
TLDR
Results confirm a phylogeny previously suggested by 18S rRNA gene sequences, corroborating the status of S. spindale as a sister taxon to S. haematobium, and demonstrate the utility of 28S r RNA gene sequence data for resolving phylogenies within the Schistosomatidae.

Nucleotide sequence differences reveal genetic variation in Neotricula aperta (Gastropoda: Pomatiopsidae), the snail host of schistosomiasis in the lower Mekong Basin
TLDR
The findings were consistent with earlier evidence suggesting dispersal of snails from highland streams in central Laos into the Mekong river of northeast Thailand; this is proposed as an explanation for the cryptic taxa in the region.
Interspecific variation within the 'hypervariable' region of the 18S ribosomal RNA gene among species of Schistosoma Weinland, 1858 (Digenea)
TLDR
The 'hypervariable' region of the 18S ribosomal DNA gene, comprising 344 base pairs, was sequenced for five species of the genus Schistosoma and confirmed that the Asian schistosomes were distantly related to the other groups of schistOSomes.
EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE SCHISTOSOMATIDAE (PLATYHELMINTHES: DIGENEA) AND AN ASIAN ORIGIN FOR SCHISTOSOMA
TLDR
This study provides little evidence concerning the ancestral molluscan or vertebrate schistosome host but does demonstrate that host switching has been an important feature of schistOSome evolution.
A molecular phylogeny of the human schistosomes.
TLDR
Both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA data strongly support "traditional" hypotheses that members of the Schistosoma haematobium group form a monophyletic clade, and the African schistosomes form a clade to the exclusion of the two Asian species.

Utility of the D1 domain of nuclear 28S rRNA for phylogenetic inference in the Digenea
TLDR
The relatively variable D1 domain near the 5′ end of the 28S ribosomal RNA gene (large subunit rRNA) has been sequenced for 12 species of digenean trematodes and it is concluded that it is too variable for phylogenetic inference among distantly related families, but it is well suited to phylogenetics inference within and among closely related families in the Digenea.
Relative merits of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacers and mitochondrial CO1 and ND1 genes for distinguishing among Echinostoma species (Trematoda)
TLDR
Cryptic species, belonging to the 37 collar-spine Echinostoma group, were distinguished using nuclear rDNA ITS and mtDNA CO1 and ND1 sequences and it was indicated that ND1 is diverging significantly faster than the other 2 regions.
