Surface structures of the early third-stage larvae were examined by scanning electron microscopy. There were hemispherical head-bulbs at the apical ends. These bulbs could be clearly distinguished from the bodies. The head-bulbs (52 X 29 micron) had four transverse rows of sharp hooklets. The number of hooklets in each row was 37, 36, 38, and 43,(More)
The movements of the infective third-stage larvae (L3) of a rodent parasitic nematode Strongyloides ratti were examined on a sodium chloride (NaCl) gradient set up on agarose plates. The movements of larvae were followed by observing their tracks on the surface of the agarose. The direction of movement depended on the NaCl concentration at the point of(More)

As limited studies have been done on surface morphology of Gnathostoma, adult specimens and eggs of four kinds of species in Japan were compared by scanning electron microscopy. Worms had a subglobular head-bulb which was armed with 7-10 rows of cephalic hooks. Mutidigitate cuticular spines were spaced unevenly on transverse cuticular striations on the(More)
