Phylogenetic relationships among monogenean
gill parasites (Dactylogyridea, Ancyrocephalidae) infesting tilapiine hosts (Cichlidae): systematic and evolutionary implications.
Mortality of captive Arapaima gigas (Osteoglossidae) heavily infected with the gill monogenean
Shannon-Weaver (H') index and Pielou equitability (E) index were used to study the monthly variation of parasite diversity of monogeneans
All the fish samples from the three different water sources were free of Crustacean, Monogenean
, and Digenean parasites.
Eighty-one of the 303 species are digeneans, 23 are monogeneans
, 63 are cestodes, 12 are acanthocephalans and finally, 124 are nematodes.
1992) used the monogenean
Microcotyle sebastis to confirm that the yellowtail rockfish Sebastes fiavidus was distributed in discrete groups along the Pacific coast of North America.
The majority of monogeneans
are localized either on the skin or on the gills of their hosts.
Homoplasy within the monogeneans
occurs in proportion to overall character change, is slightly higher than expected in the digeneans, and is much lower than expected within the eucestodes.
Zeuxapta seriolae and Benedenia seriolae have been reported as the main parasitic problems of farmed kingfish (Ogawa & Yokoyama, 1998; Montero et al.
are mainly fish ectoparasites located in gills (Eiras, 1994) and records are rare in internal organs.
belonging to the Diplozoidae are common parasites on the gills of cyprinid fish.
