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… 
SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY OF MICROTETRAMERES SPIRALIS (NEMATODA, FAMILY TETRAMERIDAE) PARASITISING CATTLE EGRET “ARDEOLA IBIS IBIS” IN EGYPT
TLDR
The results revealed that nine out of seventeen Ardeola ibis ibis (53%) were infected with M. spiralis, and female worms were deeply embedded in proventriculus wall; their bodies were twisted in longitudinal tight spiral forming 2-3 turns.
