Taxonomy There are important taxonomic problems associated with this genus. It (or its type-species) has been linked to the well-accepted genera Choricotyle and Diclidophora, with severe implications for either in terms of priority. It is critical to have a definitive decision on the nature and relationships of Cyclocotyle bellones before any taxonomic changes are made, since a case to the ICZN may be called for in terms of the preservation of long-accepted names. [details]
