the helminth community of helmeted guineafowls, numida meleagris (linnaeus, 1758), in the north of limpopo province, south africa.the helminths of 15 helmeted guineafowls were collected in the north of limpopo province, south africa. a total of 11 cestode, ten nematode and a single acanthocephalan species were present. species richness ranged from 8 to 16 species per host, and nine core and nine secondary species accounted for 40.9% of the component parasite community. the remaining 18.2% comprised satellite species. core species represented 91% of all the worms present. individual intensities ranged from 66 to 2,724 per h ...200819040137
helminths of guineafowls in limpopo province, south africa.between july 2005 and november 2006 the gastro-intestinal helminths of 15 helmeted guineafowls and a single crested guineafowl from musina, limpopo province were examined, and in july and august 2005 helminths were collected from five helmeted guineafowls from mokopane in the same province. the acanthocephalan mediorhynchus gallinarum, the cestodes abuladzugnia gutterae, davainea nana, hymenolepis cantaniana, numidella numida, octopetalum numida, ortleppolepis multiuncinata, porogynia paronai, r ...200718453236
phylogenetic relationships of spiruromorpha from birds of prey based on 18s rdna.a total of 153 free-ranging birds from germany belonging to 15 species were examined for nematodes in their digestive and respiratory tracts. in 51.7% of the birds 14 different nematode species were found: the intestinal ascarids porrocaecum depressum and p. angusticolle, the strongylid hovorkonema variegatum, which inhabits the trachea and bronchi, the hairworms eucoleus dispar and capillaria tenuissima isolated from the digestive system, the spirurid nematodes cyrnea leptoptera, c. mansioni, c ...200818252018
seasonal trends of helminth parasites of bobwhite quail.helminthologic examination of 120 adult and 65 juvenile bobwhites (colinus virginianus) from leon county, florida, during a one-year period revealed seven common (> 30% prevalence) species including raillietina cesticillus, r. colinia, cheilospirura spinosa, cyrnea colini, heterakis bonasae, tetrameres pattersoni, and trichostrongylus tenuis. less frequently found helminths included hymenolepis sp., rhabdometra odiosa, mediorhynchus papillosis, aproctella stoddardi, dispharynx nasuta, gongylonem ...19807411743
a survey of gastrointestinal helminths of the common helmet guinea fowl (numida meleagris galeata) in burkina faso.guinea fowls in burkina faso (africa) harbored 13 species of helminth parasites. the two most abundant species were subulura suctoria and ascaridia numidae, which comprised 89% of the nematodes. the other nematode species (gongylonema congolense, eucoleus annulatus, synhimantus spiralis, tetrameres fissispina, and cyrnea parroti) occurred at low levels. five species of cestodes and one acanthocephalan were also present. it is likely that guinea fowl act as important reservoir hosts of chicken ne ...19854074242
[life cycle of tetrameres (microtetrameres) inermis (linstow, 1879): tetramerid nematode parasite of the weaver ploceus aurantius in togo].the tetramerid nematode tetrameres (microtetrameres) inermis (linstow, 1879), was found in the weaver ploceus aurantius in togo. its larval biology was studied in experimentally infected orthopterans tylotropidius patagiatus and locusta migratoria (acrididae). the length of infective third-stage larvae of t. (m.) inermis (1.5-1.6 mm) was shorter (2.2-2.6 mm) than those of the larvae of t. (m.) corax and t. (m.) helix. in the family tetrameridae the primitive nature of the sub-genus microtetramer ...19863813418
