The trematode Skrjabinolecithum spasskii Belous, 1954 (Digenea: Haploporidae), a mullet parasite (Mugilidae) from Peter the great bay of the sea of Japan and from Vietnamese waters of the Gulf of Tonkin: Morphology and molecular data

The trematode Skrjabinolecithum spasskii was described by Belous from a redlip mullet, Mugil soiuy (= Liza haematocheila), that was caught in the Razdolnaya (Suifun) River (in the southern Far East of Russia). In the description of the species the author noted that the adult S. spasskii had no pigment eye spots; it had a spherical testis and short caeca; the uterus contained eggs with miracidia devoid of an eye spot. We found adult worms of this species in the intestine of the redlip mullet… 

Morphometric and molecular analyses of Skrjabinolecithum pyriforme n. sp. (Digenea: Haploporidae) in mullet fish from the Primorsky Region, Russia

Results of molecular analysis confirmed that the new species found in the intestines of Liza haematocheila and Mugil cephalus belongs to Skrjabinolecithum on the basis of close relationships with S. spasskii-type species.

Morphometric and molecular analyses of two digenean species from the mullet: Skrjabinolecithum spinosum n. sp. from the Russian southern Far East and Unisaccus tonkini n. sp. from Vietnam

Bayesian phylogenetic analysis, based on combined data of internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) and partial 28S rRNA gene sequences, confirmed the validity of S. spinosum n.

Morphometric and molecular analyses of Carassotrema koreanum Park 1938 and Elonginurus mugilus Lu 1995 (Digenea: Haploporidae) Srivastava, 1937 from the Russian Far East and Vietnam

Phylogenetic analysis based on combined ITS2 ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and 28S rRNA indicated that C. koreanum and E. mugilus belong to the subfamily Waretrematinae and are closely related to the genera Skrjabinolecithum and Parasaccocoelium, respectively.

First rDNA sequence data for Haplosplanchnus pachysomus (Digenea: Haplosplanchnidae) ex Mugil cephalus from the Black Sea, and molecular evidence for cryptic species within Haplosplanchnus pachysomus (Digenea: Haplosplanchnidae) in Palaearctic and Indo-West Pacific regions

The results indicate that H. pachysomus from Spain and the Black Sea and from Vietnam and Australia can presently be considered as two cryptic species, one in Palaearctic and one in Indo-West Pacific regions.

Population genetic analysis of trematode Parasaccocoelium mugili Zhukov, 1971 (Haploporidae Nicoll, 1914) from the Russian Far East and Vietnam based on ribosomal ITS and mitochondrial COI gene partial sequence data

Molecular identification of Parasaccocoelium mugili from the Kievka River, Primorye and from Vietnam was performed by analysis of 28S rDNA sequences, and mitochondrial COI gene sequence data analysis revealed fixed nucleotide and amino acid substitutions and supported the existence of two genetically different groups associated with geographical origin.

Trematode diversity in freshwater fishes of the Globe II: ‘New World’

A better understanding of trematode diversity and biology will also depend on strategic sampling throughout the Americas, as well as the paucity of known life-cycles.

Trematode diversity in freshwater fishes of the Globe I: ‘Old World’

The trematode fauna of freshwater fishes of the ‘Old World’, a vast area consisting of the Palaearctic, Ethiopian, Oriental and Australasian zoogeographical regions, is reviewed, continent by continent, to represent the existence of cryptic species and considerable decrease of experts in taxonomy and life-cycles of trematodes.

Phylogenetic position of the family Orientocreadiidae within the superfamily Plagiorchioidea (Trematoda) based on partial 28S rDNA sequence

The phylogenetic position of this family is inferred based on the partial 28S rDNA sequence from a representative of the genus Orientocreadium, which placed the Orientoc readiidae within a clade corresponding to the superfamily Plagiorchioidea and supported the family Leptophallidae as a sister taxon.



Review of haploporid (Trematoda) genera with ornate muscularisation in the region of the oral sucker, including four new species and a new genus

Analysis of sequence data of a c.2,500 bp region of the 3′ end of 18S, the entire ITS region and the 5′ endof the 28S revealed that Spiritestis and Capitimitta are not as closely related as some morphological features would suggest and are probably not the closest relative of each other.

A New Species of Intromugil (Digenea: Haploporidae) and Redescription of Intromugil mugilicolus

Comparison of more than 2,400 base-pair-long sequences of nuclear rDNA from I. mugilicolus and I. alachuaensis n.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Microphalloidea Ward, 1901 (Trematoda: Digenea)

It is demonstrated that the Microphalloidea, as represented by the present data-set, consists of three main clades corresponding to the families Lecithodendriidae, Microphallidae and Pleurogenidae + Prosthogonimidae.

Phylogeography of the flathead mullet Mugil cephalus in the north-west Pacific as inferred from the mtDNA control region.

The population genetic structure and historical demography of the flathead mullet Mugil cephalus were investigated using the mtDNA control region (CR) sequences of 126 individuals collected from seven locations in the north-west Pacific between 2005 and 2007, revealing two populations and Japan appears to be a contact zone between lineages 1 and 2.

Characteristics of the Life History of Grey Mullet from Taiwanese Waters

One population of the grey mullet mugil cephalus inhabits the waters around the Taiwan Strait and in the spawning season migrates to the coasts of southern Taiwan. The grey mullet is long-lived and

Genetic population structure of Liza haematocheilus in north-western Pacific detected by amplified fragment length polymorphism markers

The incongruence between nuclear groups and mitochondrial lineage suggests the three distinct lineages do not represent cryptic species and the presence of divergent mitochondrial lineages in the same sample is a result of secondary contact after an extended period of isolation.

Keys to the Trematoda

This volume covers five superfamilies within the Order Plagiorchiida and the family Didymozoidae, with keys for their identification at the family, subfamily and generic levels.

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.

MEGA6: Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis version 6.0.

An advanced version of the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis software, which currently contains facilities for building sequence alignments, inferring phylogenetic histories, and conducting molecular evolutionary analysis, is released, which enables the inference of timetrees, as it implements the RelTime method for estimating divergence times for all branching points in a phylogeny.
