REGO, Amilcar Arandas; CHUBB, James C  and  PAVANELLI, Gilberto C. Cestodes in South American freshwater teleost fishes: keys to genera and brief description of species. Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 1999, vol.16, n.2, pp.299-367. ISSN 0101-8175.

Keys to genera of cestodes in South American freshwater teleost fishes are provided, with diagnoses of genera and short descriptions of species. Two new genera are proposed, Chambriella gen.n. for Goezeella agostinhoi Pavanelli & Santos, 1992 and G paranaensis Pavanelli & Rego, 1989, and Brooksiella gen.n. for Amphoteromorphus praeputialis Rego, Santos & Silva, 1974. Nomimoscolex magna Rego, Santos & Silva, 1974, previously species inquirenda, is transferred to the genus Proteocephalus Weinland, 1858. Goezeella nupeliensis Pavanelli & Rego, 1989 is considered a species inquirenda. Species and host lists are included.

Keywords : Cestoda; Proteocephalidea; freshwater fishes; parasitology.
