Speciation by host switch and adaptive radiation in a fish parasite genus Gyrodactylus Monogenea: BoxOulu, Finland. For the species description, the preserved haptors were photographed and measured under a microscope using the measurements of Gusev et al. The present gyrosactylus, however, provides an additional set of measurements taken from the type material of G. Cyprinodontiformes in Nova Scotia, Canada.


Gyrodactylus Biology

The fact that the current species is both morphologically and molecularly more closely related to Gyrodactylus species parasitising marine gobies and eels than to those infecting cyprinodontids, might suggest that the ecology of the host, rather than host phylogeny plays an important role in this host-parasite system.

They are all marine monogeneans and the geographical distance indicates that it is likely that at least the coastal waters of all seas contain related parasite species. These viviparous parasites already contain a fully grown embryo the F1 in utero when born and as the parent ages, development of a third generation embryo the F2 is visible within the F1 see Fig.

To enlarge the geographical range of the Gyrodactylus spp. The total fragment bp consists of the 3′ end of the 18S subunit 32 bpthe ITS1 bpthe 5. However, in Gyrodactylus leptorhynchi the parasite was found mostly found attached to body surfaces such as the dorsal fins.

Toothcarp is a colloquial term used to describe members of the order Cyprinodontiformes, which comprises ten fish families, namely Anablepidae, Aplocheilidae, Cyprinodontidae, Fundulidae, Goodeidae, Nothobranchiidae, Poeciliidae, Profundulidae, Rivulidae and Valenciidae [ 1 ]. The phylogeographic coverage of this lineage is now gyrodactyls significantly to include the Southern Hemisphere and gyyrodactylus Pacific Ocean.
