    ..The aim of this study is to highlight criteria which can be interesting in Platyhelminthes phylogeny. ..
  4. Quilichini Y, Foata J, Justine J, Bray R, Marchand B. Spermatozoon ultrastructure of Aponurus laguncula (Digenea: Lecithasteridae), a parasite of Aluterus monoceros (Pisces: Teleostei). Parasitol Int. 2010;59:22-8 pubmed publisher
    ..This study is the first undertaken with a member of the Lecithasteridae and exemplifies the sperm ultrastructure for the superfamily Hemiuroidea. ..

    Quilichini Y, Foata J, Justine J, Bray R, Marchand B. Spermatozoon ultrastructure of Gyliauchen sp. (Digenea: Gyliauchenidae), an intestinal parasite of Siganus fuscescens (Pisces: Teleostei). Biol Bull. 2011;221:197-205 pubmed
    ..This is the first study of a member of the Gyliauchenidae and the fourth within the Lepocreadioidea. The results show that many ultrastructural characters are variable within this superfamily and could be useful for phylogeny. ..
  6. Diagne P, Quilichini Y, Bâ C, Ndiaye P, Dione A, Marchand B. Ultrastructure of the spermatozoon of Helicometroides atlanticus (Digenea, Monorchiidae), an intestinal parasite of Parapristipoma octolineatum (Pisces, Teleostei) in Senegal. Tissue Cell. 2015;47:198-204 pubmed publisher
    ..Nevertheless, it is distinguished from M. parvus by the presence of an anterior electron-dense material and two axonemes which appear one after the other. ..
  7. Quilichini Y, Ndiaye P, Sène A, Justine J, Bray R, Tkach V, et al. Ultrastructural characters of the spermatozoa in Digeneans of the genus Bianium Stunkard, 1930 (Digenea, Lepocreadiidae) parasites of fishes: a comparative study of Bianium plicitum and Bianium arabicum. Parasitol Res. 2015;114:3747-57 pubmed publisher
    ..Only the nucleus reaches into the posterior extremity of the spermatozoon in these two species. The general pattern of the spermatozoon described in these two species exhibit the general model in the genus Bianium. ..
  8. Dione A, Quilichini Y, Bâ C, Diagne P, Ndiaye P, Marchand B. Ultrastructural study of the spermatozoon of Hemiurus appendiculatus (Digenea, Hemiuroidea, Hemiuridae), a parasite of Boops boops (Pisces, Teleostei, Sparidae) off Senegal. Tissue Cell. 2016;48:96-103 pubmed publisher
    ..This study also allowed us to reveal for the first time the existence in the Hemiuroidea of an axoneme that begins to disrupt before reaching the front end of the mitochondrion. ..

    ..06nm in diameter. These features are discussed with bibliographic data signalized for other species. Phylogenetic and functional significations of the cocoon wall structure in leeches are suggested. ..
