Historical biogeography of Temnocephalida (Platyhelminthes, Rhabdocoela): testing the Gondwanan hypothesis

Temnocephalida, a group of small epibiontic worms strictly associated with freshwater hosts, includes 179 taxa in 23 genera, classified in two major groups: Scutarielloidea, distributed in the Palaearctic region, and Temnocephaloidea distributed mainly in the Australian and Neotropical regions. Based on a large-scale spatio-temporal dimension, a biogeographic hypothesis on a Gondwanan scenario was tested.
