Gametogenesis was studied in several pharyngodonid parasites of Testudo graeca. Species investigated are Tachygonetria longicollis longicollis, T. l. pusilla, T. macrolaimus, T. dentata, Alaeuris numidica and Mehdiella uncinata. Males of all except T. l. pusilla have been studied: divisions in the germinative zone of the testis contained five chromosomes and there was no evidence of meiosis; mitotic divisions containing five chromosomes were observed just anterior to the seminal vesicle in T…
