Contrasting Host-Parasite Population Structure: Morphology and Mitogenomics of a Parasitic Flatworm on Pelagic Deepwater Cichlid Fishes from Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
The present study revealed the lake-wide occurrence of Cichlidogyrus casuarinus, a parasite with a broad host range infecting pelagic fishes endemic to Lake Tanganyika, and presented the first parasite mitogenome from LakeTanganyika and proposed a methodological framework for studying the intraspecific mitogenomic variation of dactylogyrid monogeneans.
Intraspecific morphological variation in Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea) parasitizing two cichlid hosts from Lake Tanganyika exhibiting different dispersal capacities
TLDR
Geomorphometric analyses revealed that populations of C. milangelnari, which parasitize poorly dispersing cichlids, are more differentiated than populations ofC.
The genetic population structure of Lake Tanganyika’s Lates species flock, an endemic radiation of pelagic top predators
TLDR
The population genetics of four endemic Lates species of Lake Tanganyika are investigated using reduced-representation genomic sequencing methods, finding the four species to be strongly differentiated from one another and evidence for strong genetic structure within L. mariae.
From the Atlantic Coast to Lake Tanganyika: Gill-Infecting Flatworms of Freshwater Pellonuline Clupeid Fishes in West and Central Africa, with Description of Eleven New Species and Key to Kapentagyrus (Monogenea, Dactylogyridae)
TLDR
This study more than quadruples the known species richness of Kapentagyrus, and almost quadrupling the number of pellonuline species of which monogeneans are known, which will contribute to understanding data-poor African fisheries.
Genetic population structure of the monogenean parasite Gyrodactylus thymalli and its host European grayling (Thymallus thymallus) in a large Norwegian lake
TLDR
The results imply that moderate to high levels of gene flow occur among the sub-populations of both taxa, and the high parasite exchange among tributaries could result from a lack of strong homing behavior in grayling as well as interactions among individual fish outside of the spawning season, leading to frequent mixing of both host and parasite.
De novo developed microsatellite markers in gill parasites of the genus Dactylogyrus (Monogenea): Revealing the phylogeographic pattern of population structure in the generalist parasite Dactylogyrus vistulae.
TLDR
The initial clustering analysis divided all investigated specimens into three major clusters; however, the results of the subsequent analyses revealed the existence of various subpopulations, suggesting that the population structure of D. vistulae is associated with the diversification of their cyprinoid hosts.

Monogenean parasites of sardines in Lake Tanganyika: diversity, origin and intraspecific variability
TLDR
A freshwater origin of the currently known monogenean species infecting clupeids in Africa is suggested, with the two species from Lake Tanganyika representing a quite distinct lineage.
Reduced host-specificity in a parasite infecting non-littoral Lake Tanganyika cichlids evidenced by intraspecific morphological and genetic diversity
TLDR
The highly variable mitochondrial DNA indicated recent population expansion, but no ongoing parasite speciation, confirming, for the first time in freshwater, reduced parasite host specificity in the deepwater realm, probably an adaptation to low host availability.
Phylogeography and Demographic History of Gotocotyla sawara (Monogenea: Gotocotylidae) on Japanese Spanish Mackerel (Scomberomorus niphonius) Along the Coast of China
TLDR
The genetic population structure and historic demography of a platyhelminth species, Gotocotyla sawara, a gill parasite of Japanese Spanish mackerel, along the coast of China revealed that G. sawara underwent population expansion in the late Pleistocene era, which may account in part for the lack of genetic structure in the geographic areas considered in this study.
First genomic study on Lake Tanganyika sprat Stolothrissa tanganicae: a lack of population structure calls for integrated management of this important fisheries target species
TLDR
A first comprehensive study on the population structure of these important fisheries target species, and can guide fisheries management, advising to manage the stock as one population, integrating one management strategy over the four riparian countries.
Big fish, little divergence: phylogeography of Lake Tanganyika’s giant cichlid, Boulengerochromis microlepis
TLDR
The shallow divergence within the species may be related to a possibly large variance in reproductive success in this highly fecund species, and Trophic niche space restriction by sympatric piscivores, lack of geographic structure, low potential for sexual selection arising from the monogamous mating system and extinction may have contributed to keeping the lineage monotypic.
The Monogenean Parasite Fauna of Cichlids: A Potential Tool for Host Biogeography
TLDR
Host-switches and salinity transitions may be invoked to explain the pattern revealed by a preliminary morphological phylogeny of monogenean genera from Cichlidae and other selected Monogenea genera, rendering the parasite distribution explicable under both vicariance and dispersal.
A separate lowstand lake at the northern edge of Lake Tanganyika? Evidence from phylogeographic patterns in the cichlid genus Tropheus
TLDR
The present study aims at the fine-scale reconstruction of the spread of two mitochondrial Tropheus-lineages in the very north of the lake, where two species, T. sp.
Comparative phylogeography of two monogenean species (Mazocraeidae) on the host of chub mackerel, Scomber japonicus, along the coast of China
TLDR
Both neutrality tests and mismatch distribution suggested that the populations of these two species of parasites experienced population expansion in the late Pleistocene era due to the glacial–interglacial cycles induced by climatic oscillations.
Phylogeography of Tetrancistrum nebulosi (Monogenea, Dactylogyridae) on the host of mottled spinefoot (Siganus fuscescens) in the South China Sea, inferred from mitochondrial COI and ND2 genes
TLDR
Mismatch distribution and neutrality tests indicated that the T. nebulosi population experienced expansion in Pleistocene low sea level periods, and oceanographic circulations and host migration could lead to genetic homogeneity of populations distributed along the mainland coast of China.
