camponotus compressiscapus andré (hymenoptera, formicidae) an experimental second intermediate host of dicrocoelium hospes looss, 1907 (trematodes, dicrocoeliidae).infection experiments showed that the african ant camponotus compressiscapus can serve as a second intermediate host of dicrocoelium hospes. most of the cercariae penetrated the crop-wall and encysted in the hemocoel, whereas one or more larvae invaded the ant's central nervous system. these larvae cause behavioral changes, which increase their chance of being ingested by final hosts. experimental infections of definitive hosts were obtained in golden hamsters, meriones unguiculatus, guinea-pigs ...19807434875
dicrocoelium hospes looss, 1907 (digenea, dicrocoeliidae): spermiogenesis, mature spermatozoon and ultrastructural comparative study.this work describes the first ultrastructural results on spermiogenesis and on the mature spermatozoon of dicrocoelium hospes (trematoda, digenea) collected in bos indicus from senegal (africa). examination of this species was processed by tem. spermiogenesis follows the general pattern found in the digenean, but reveals a particularity consisting of the appearance of glycogen granules in the late spermatids within the testes. the mature spermatozoon possesses five distinct regions and presents ...200515772868
morphological and molecular differentiation between dicrocoelium dendriticum (rudolphi, 1819) and dicrocoelium chinensis (sudarikov and ryjikov, 1951) tang and tang, 1978 (platyhelminthes: digenea).dicrocoelium dendriticum (rudolphi, 1819) and dicrocoelium hospes (looss, 1907) are recognised to affect the liver of domestic and wild ruminants. a third species, dicrocoelium orientalis which was described from musk deer in the baikal region of the former soviet union and re-named to dicrocoelium chinensis (sudarikov and ryjikov, 1951) tang and tang, 1978 was isolated from other species of deer in asian countries and from mouflon and roe deer in europe. scant information is available for d. ch ...200717803950
incidence of liver fluke infections (fasciola gigantica and dicrocoelium hospes) in ruminants in northern thousand and twenty-four cattle, 550 sheep and 1,748 goats slaughtered in a rural slaughter slab during 1973 to 1975 were examined for evidence of liverfluke infections. the prevalence rate of fasciola gigantica and dicrocoelium hospes infections was respectively 65.4% and 56.0% in cattle, 40.8 and 13.1% in sheep and 17.6 and 5.2% in goats. other trematodes detected were schistosoma bovis and paramphistomes. the seasonal incidence of f. gigantica as well as of d. hospes was highest during an ...19807414705
