The functional anatomy of the cysticercoid of Choanotaenia crassiscolex (Linstow 1890) (Dilepididae) from the digestive gland of Oxychilus cellarius (Mull) (Stylommatophora), with some observations
TLDR
An attempt is made to determine more precisely than has hitherto been done for cysticercoids, the relationship of parasite and host. Expand

TLDR
A new name, the “vagina sac”, is given to what was previously described as a receptaculum seminis, thought to serve for propulsion of male and female cells into the uterine duct. Expand

  • 7 February 1953
TLDR
More recent work by Chatton and Tuzet4, who made a very detailed histological examination, confirms this view, though no figures are given in their work of the final relationship of the ripe spermatozoa to the cytophore. Expand
Maturation Divisions of the Ova in the Pseudophyllidean Cestode, Eubothrium crassum (Bloch)
TLDR
It has been carefully shown by various workers, notably Chen, Rees, Stephenson4 and Willmott5, that meiosis in the ovum is normal and occurs in that part of the uterus immediately beyond the central chamber of Mehlis's gland. Expand
A New Type of Early Cysticercoid Stage in a Cyclophyllidean Cestode
TLDR
The earliest stage of this cysticercoid is regarded as being pre-cystic and which, so far as the authors are aware, is unlike anything previously described. Expand
Germ Cell Migrations in a Cestode
TLDR
In a member of the problematical order Tetrabothridea, oogonia, true vitelline cells, and what are considered to be shell-producing cells of two kinds, differentiate within the female primordium, although the whole process is delayed in this worm because of marked protandry. Expand
