Retrieved from ” https: Two new species of Gyrodactylus von Nordmann, Monogenea: Monthly variation in the parasite communities of the intertidal fish Scartichthys viridis Blenniidae from central Chile: However, gyrodactylids are frustratingly similar in appearance and difficulties in species identification are believed to have considerable hampered ecological studies.

Based on the nuclear ITS fragment, the genus Gyrodactylus can be divided in two groups, one with a ‘short’ bp and one with a ‘long’ bp ITS1 fragment [ 3031 ]. We feel the practical advantages of working with these model systems for studying host-parasite interactions are unsurpassed.

Ann Arbor, Michigan; Despite their gyrodactylu conservatism, it appears that gyrodactylids display a range of different behavioural traits associated with gyrodavtylus diverse ecology of their teleost hosts e.

However, in Gyrodactylus leptorhynchi the parasite was found gyroxactylus found attached to body surfaces such as the dorsal fins.

The biology of these pathogens predilects them for introduction Kennedy and numerous species have been introduced to Europe.

A morphological description of the latter species is unavailable. The use of morphometric characters to discriminate species of laboratory-reared and wild populations of Gyrodactylus salaris and G.

Haptoral morphology of Gyrodactylus chileani n. The second group of species which has large open faced sickles with a double angled sickle shaft and narrow sickle base i. Due to the small fraction of the genus analysed in the above works, little can be said about its systematics. This underlines again the fact that morphological and molecular evolution is not always correlated.


Nominal species of the genus Gyrodactylus von Nordmann Monogenea: These include Gyrodactylus foxi Rawson,Gyrodactylus megacanthus Wellborn et Rogers,Gyrodactylus prolongis Hargis,Gyrodactylus stableri Hathaway et Herlevich, and Gyrodactylus trematoclithrus Rogers,all of which were subsequently transferred to the genus Fundulotrema Kritsky et Thatcher, based on the presence of an additional peduncular bar [ 26 ].

Fish were collected from rocky pools during low tides in July, An alternative strategy towards the global systematics of the family Gyrodactylidae could be an extraction of well-supported monophyletic lineages based on their DNA, such as the nine lineages visible in present phylogeny, and their further supplementation by morphological characters, but leaving the genus Gyrodactylus as polyphyletic until all of its evolutionary lineages are resolved.

The paratypes were re-measured and the marginal hook sickle re-drawn and overlaid with G. Damage to the host is caused by the marginal hook, this hook can cause tissue damage as well as irritation.
