During our work on biodiversity of parasites of mammals of the Neotropics we collected numerous nematodes assignable to species of the family Aspidoderidae (Nemata: Heterakoidea). These nematodes occur as parasites of the cecum and large intestine of marsupials, rodents and xenarthrans (armadillos) only in the New World. As aspidoderid nematodes have been little studied beyond their alpha taxonomy, it is the purpose of the present paper to apply phylogenetic systematic methods to more… Expand
New Aspidoderidae species parasite of Didelphis aurita (Mammalia: Didelphidae): a light and scanning electron microscopy approach.
TLDR
A new species of Aspidodera parasite of the large intestine of Didelphis aurita (Mammalia: Didelphidae) Wied-Neuwied, 1826 is described, collected from Cachoeiras de Macacu, Rio de Janeiro, using the combination of light and scanning electron microscopy. Expand
A New Species of Aspidodera (Nematoda: Heterakoidea) Parasitizing the Giant Anteater Myrmecophaga tridactyla (Pilosa: Myrmecophagidae) in Brazil and New Key to Species
TLDR
This is the first report of a coinfection with 3 congeners in the same individual host involving Aspidodera and urges researchers to preserve and document the metazoan parasites from tetrapod species considered vulnerable, because they can be valuable sources of information on the distribution of parasites in the wild.

Aspidodera kinsellai n. sp. (Nematoda: Heterakoidea) from Nine-Banded Armadillos in Middle America with Notes on Phylogeny and Host–Parasite Biogeography
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the species in the genus with the use of the mitochondrial partial genes cytochrome C oxidase subunit 1 (cox1), the ribosomal large subunit (rrnL), and the internal transcriber spacer (ITS) shows that 2 species of Aspidodera may have entered into North America from the south via 2 independent events.

NEMATODES ASSOCIATED WITH MAMMALS IN THE GREAT AMERICAN BIOTIC INTERCHANGE (GABI)
TLDR
It is posited that the conservatism of parasite resource use, heritability of the adaptive immune system, and the genetic structure of parasites make it possible to elucidate the role of these parasites in GABI, and introduces nine host-parasite systems that provide insights on the role. Expand
Four Events of Host Switching in Aspidoderidae (Nematoda) Involve Convergent Lineages of Mammals
TLDR
A reconstruction of the evolutionary events in Aspidoderidae, a family of nematodes that infect mammals that are part of the Great American Interchange, suggests 3 events of dispersal into the Nearctic and two invasions would suggest that 2 different lineages of dasypodid parasites entered the Northern Hemisphere at different times.

TLDR
Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated. Expand

Philosophy and the Transformation of Cladistics
TLDR
The main principles of the Hennigian system are that the basic process of organic evolution is the splitting of an ancestral species into two descendant species and that each dichotomy should be taken as marking the origin of two new units of classification; and that the hierarchic level of such units should be determined by the geological time when the dichotomy occurred.
