Studies on the taxonomy and ecology of the turbellarian
(Plathelminthes) in the floodplain of the Parana river (Argentina).

observed in the first sampling (Fig.
A low prevalence of gill infestation by the turbellarian
Urastoma cyprinae is commonly reported in the oyster Crassostrea virginica from Canada (Brun et al.
The cell lineage of a polyclad turbellarian
embryo reveals close similarity to coelomate spiralians.
The histopathological analysis revealed the presence of basophilic intracytoplasmic inclusions in the epithelium of the digestive gland, ciliates and coccidia in gills, trematode sporocysts in gonad, and metacercariae in foot muscle, and a turbellarian
in gills (Table 2).
2010), an isopod that can be found on the skin of the sea cucumber (Menzies & Miller 1955), a platyhelminth that lives in the coelom (Cannon 1990), and turbellarian
parasites that live in its intestine (Hickman 1955, Jondelius 1996).
This deployment had conspicuously fewer clams than did comparable ones from which predatory taxa such as Xyloplax and turbellarian
flatworms were absent (unpub.
was found in the connective tissue, gills, gonad, mantle, digestive glands, and foot: trematode sporocysts were identified in the gonads, stomach epithelium, mantle, digestive glands, and foot: and a turbellarian
was observed in the stomach epithelium, gonads, digestive glands, mantle, and gills.
Although meiofauna nematodes appear unaffected by this crab, ostracod, copepod, and turbellarian
densities were significantly lower in mudflat habitats disturbed by the crab (Rosa & Bemvenuti 2005).
ABSTRACT Urastoma cyprinae is a turbellarian
that infects the gills of numerous species of bivalves.

In fact, there was no more than one turbellarian
, either gill or intestine, occurring in the tissue when the scallops were infected despite their origin.
