Alinema sturni is considered an alien species for Australia that has been introduced with its host (starling) and subsequently adapted to a wide range of native avian hosts.
Description of Proyseria petterae n. sp., with an amended generic diagnosis and a review of the species of Proyseria Petter, 1959 and Stegophorus Wehr, 1934 (Nematoda: Acuariidae)
Proyseriadecora (Dujardin, 1845) (the type-species of the genus Proyseria Petter, 1959) is redescribed on the basis of specimens from Alcedo atthis (L.) (Coraciiformes: Alcedinidae) from Iran. P.
Cestode parasites (Neodermata, Platyhelminthes) from Malaysian birds, with description of five new species
The cestode fauna of forest birds in Malaysia (Selangor) collected during a field trip in 2010 is studied, hinting at the potentially huge unknown parasite diversity from wild hosts in this part of the world.
Isospora svecica sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae), a new species of coccidium from the white-spotted bluethroat Luscinia svecica cyanecula (Aves: Passeriformes: Muscicapidae)
A new apicomplexan parasite is described from the white-spotted bluethroat, Luscinia svecica cyanecula, from the Czech Republic, which differs morphologically from other coccidia reported from muscicapid birds, and represents the first coccidian species described from Luscinian s Vecica.


Two new nematode species of the genus Cosmocephalus Molin, 1858 (Spirurida: Acuariidae), with an amended generic diagnosis and an identification key to Cosmocephalus spp.
