what made class monogenea be a sparate class ??? what made it more developed than turbellaria ???\

== ==how to mount the monogenea species?? i need that answer as soon as possible :)) please

According to Animals without Backbones (R Buchsbaum), Monogeneans are separate due to loss of external cilia (they are not free living like the turbellarians), and the development of a special epidermis which prevents them from being digested. Monogeneans have an enormously developed sucker. One more difference according the Buchsbaum is the Turbellarians are seen in commensal and mutualistic relationships, while Monogeneans are parasitic. Hope this helps. Avigon 18:55, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Lots of descendent stub articles: potential merge in order?[edit]

I'll admit I don't know much about Monogeneans, but there seem to be several descendent taxon pages that exist purely as linker stubs, with very little encyclopedic information that cannot be more easily obtained on other websites. The bulk of the information regarding Mongeneans seems to be at the genus or species level articles, so rather than a myriad of subclass, order, and family pages-- most with predominantly red linked descendents or redundant information-- perhaps a single list-style page can be developed with links to key taxa. In this way, readers can quickly find useful content, rather than clicking through several pages that effectively simply say "taxon B is a subset of taxon A with X subtaxa". Another option would be to merge multiple species articles at the level of family or order, with appropriate redirects, until existing articles are fleshed out. I'm interested in hearing other opinions.--Animalparty-- (talk) 22:18, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
