  • Intermediate host switches drive diversification among the largest trematode family: evidence from the Polypipapiliotrematinae n. subf. (Opecoelidae), parasites transmitted to butterflyfishes via predation of coral polyps.
  • New collections of blood flukes (Aporocotylidae) from fishes of the tropical Indo-west Pacific, including a new genus, two new species and molecular evidence that Elaphrobates chaetodontis (Yamaguti, 1970) is widespread in the region.
  • Fish predation on corals promotes the dispersal of coral symbionts.
