The adult morphology of Saccocoelioides sogandaresi sp. n. is described. The current status of the family Haploporidae and certain genera of the subfamily Haploporinae are reviewed. The role of hostExpand
Cytological studies on the absorptive surfaces of cestodes. V. Incorporation of carbohydrate-containing macromolecules into tegument membranes.
It would seem appropr ate, therefore, to designate the surface investment of these helminths a glycocalyx, though more specific terms such as external cuticle, epicuticle, pericercarial envelope, or Cercarienhiille have been used. Expand
Cytological aspects of lipid assimilation by cestodes. Incorporation of linoleic acid into the parenchyma and eggs of Hymenolepis diminuta.
The present results indicate that linoleic acid absorbed from the tapeworm's environment is rapidly esterfied within the cortical and medullary parenchyma and incorporated into the developing eggs of Hymenolepis diminuta. Expand
The microanatomy and fine structure of the rostellum ofHymenolepis diminuta
The microanatomic arrangement of the muscular, nervous, and excretory systems as well as the organization of the tegument are described for the rostellum of Hymenolepis diminuta, which includes a single bilateral pair of ganglia which provide motor innervation of the anterior canal. Expand
