Toxicity of the herbicide glyphosate to Chordodes nobilii (Gordiida, Nematomorpha).
Larval survival strategy during winter of Chordodes nobilii Camerano, 1901 (Gordiida, Nematomorpha)
It is demonstrated that egg development of Chordodesnobilii takes 20–25 days at 22°C and 45–55 days at 5°C, and that larvae of C. nobilii obtained from egg strings at 5 °C and maintained at that temperature during six months remained inside their egg shells as a survival strategy.
Fine morphology of the cuticle surface of Chordodes anthophorus and reinterpretation of C. aquaeductus, C. ferganensis and C. oscillatus (Gordiida Nematomorpha)
Using scanning electron microscopy, characteristic cuticular patterns are demonstrated for Chordodes anthophorus, one of the four species of the genus Chordode from Central Asia and one from Georgia (Transcaucasian part of former USSR).
Paratenic hosts: larval survival strategy of Paragordius varius [Leidy, 1851] [Gordiida, Nematomorpha]
Sensitivity of preparasitic stages of Chordodes nobilii (Gordiida, Nematomorpha) to malathion
Results indicate that a short-term exposure to malathion at levels potentially present in the surface water in environments inhabited by Chordodes nobilii affects significantly its preparasitic stages and the infective capacity of parasitic larvae.
Dasyhelea necrophila Spinelli et Rodriguez, 1999 [Diptera, Ceratopogonidae] a new potential paratenic host of Paragordius varius [Leidy, 1851] [Gordiida, Nematomorpha]
Effect of extreme temperature on egg development, larval and adult survival of Chordodes nobilii Camerano, 1901 (Gordiida, Nematomorpha)
It is shown that free living stages of Chordodes nobilii are susceptible to extreme temperatures and egg development was inhibited in both tests.
New data on South American species of Chordodes (Nematomorpha)
Taxonomic characters of both male and female horse-hair worms Chordodes brasiliensis, and C. nobilii (Nematomorpha) and female of C. carmelitanus are re-described by scanning electron microscopy.…
Finding of Gordius austrinus De Villalobos, Zanca & Ibarra-Vidal, 2005 (Gordiida, Nematomorpha) in the stomach of Salmo trutta (Salmoniformes) in Patagonia
El analisis ultraestructural (MEB) realizado sobre los especimenes de gordiidos, colectados dentro del estomago de la trucha cafe, sobre las caracteristicas del extremo posterior y the cuticula permitieron asignarlos a la especie Gordius austrinus.
