We compared the morphology, morphometry, and some aspects of the biology and ecology of Eubothrium crassum and E. salvelini, two pseudophyllidean tapeworms in brown trout, Salmo trutta m. lacustris, and Arctic charr, Salvelinus alpinus, in lakes of the western part of the Alps. The taxonomic importance of the apical disc for the discrimination of both taxa was confirmed. The apical disc of E. crassum is rectangular, possessing two deep grooves above the bothriae and 2–16 additional indentations… CONTINUE READING
