  • 2018
Mating is described for the first time in a member of the genus Benedenia, namely in Benedenia seriolae from the skin of the yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata, and is compared with mating in theExpand
Three new species of Pseudohaliotrema Yamaguti, 1953 (Monogenea: Ancyrocephalidae) from Siganus species (Siganidae) and the description of a mechanism for cross-insemination
Three new species of Pseudohaliotrema Yamaguti, 1953 were collected from two Siganus species caught off Singapore, including P. virgata n. Expand
Spermatophores in Dermopristis cairae Whittington et Kearn, 2011 (Monogenea, Microbothriidae)
The evidence points to the first of these alternatives as the most likely but this is not conclusive and requires observations on mating between living parasites. Expand
Monogenean Parasite Cultures: Current Techniques and Recent Advances.
This review critically examines methods to establish and maintain in vivo monogenean monocultures on finfish, elasmobranchs and amphibians to improve understanding of aquatic parasitology and identify mechanisms to limit infestations in public aquaria, ornamental trade and intensive aquaculture.

Reproduction in the Platyhelminthes (Flatworms)
Sexual and asexual reproduction in the phylum Playthelminthes (flatworms) are described. The early separation of the ovary into germarium and vitellarium is highlighted and the chemistry ofExpand
A new species of Entobdella Blainville in Lamarck, 1818 (Monogenea: Capsalidae: Entobdellinae) from the Greenland halibut, Reinhardtius hippoglossoides
The question as to whether this gill parasite of the pleuronectid Atheresthes stomias has evolved from a skin-parasitic ancestor similar to E. whittingtoni requires a more detailed study of the male reproductive apparatus of B. pugetensis and the use of molecular techniques to explore the relationship.

Correction: Reproductive Strategies of the Insidious Fish Ectoparasite, Neobenedenia sp. (Capsalidae: Monogenea)
This research presents a novel probabilistic procedure that allows for direct measurement of the response of the immune system to earthquake-triggered landsliding. Expand
Sperm transfer in monogenean (platyhelminth) parasites
The relatively few accounts in the literature of mating in monogeneans are reproduced in this review, together with consideration of the following aspects of sperm transfer: structure and function of MCOs; self-insemination; spermatophores and pseudosper matophores; “hypodermic” and transtegumental insemination; tissue fusion; glands associated with MCOe; finding a mating partner. Expand
Insemination of the monogenean Neobenedenia girellae (Capsalidae, Benedeniinae).
The presence of self-insemination indicates that even a single N. girellae on a cultured fish may cause a significant parasite infection in the entire aquaculture system. Expand
Reproductive Strategies of the Insidious Fish Ectoparasite, Neobenedenia sp. (Capsalidae: Monogenea)
The first experimental evidence that a notorious fish monogenean, Neobenedenia sp. Expand


Spermatophores in the Monogenean Entobdella diadema Monticelli from the skin of sting-rays, with a note on the taxonomy of the parasite
Entobdella diadema produces spermatophores from a pair of follicular glands lying one on each side of the body alongside the main nerve cord, and the secretion of these glands is stored in aExpand
Breathing movements in Entobdella soleae (Trematoda, Monogenea) from the skin of the common sole.
During August 1960 and April 1961, a number of living specimens of Entobdella soleae were recovered from the blind (= 'ventral ') surfaces of common sole caught at Plymouth, and a characteristic undulating movement of the flattened leaf-like body was noticed in all individuals examined. Expand
