The larval development in the intermediate host of threeRaillietiella species which utilize lizards as definitive hosts and insects as intermediate hosts has been studied. In experimentally infected cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) early larval development involves three moults to an infective fourth-stage larva which appears from six weeks post-infection. The three successive larval stages in the intermediate host that develop in the haemocoel encysted by cells of the arthropod host differ… 

Infection Experiments Indicate That Common Florida Anurans and Lizards May Serve as Intermediate Hosts for the Invasive Pentastome Parasite, Raillietiella orientalis

It is revealed that pentastome infection did not significantly affect survival or growth in roaches, lizards, or anurans, unlike the native snake species that serve as the definitive hosts.

Description of the Egg and Larva of Raillietiella Mottae (Pentastomida: Raillietiellidae)

The structural characteristics of the egg and larva of the pentastomid Raillietiella mottae, a Pentastomida species from the Neotropical Region, are described and compared with those of otherpentastomids.

Pentastomids infecting an invader lizard, Hemidactylus mabouia (Gekkonidae) in northeastern Brazil.

Hemidactylus mabouia is a new host to R. mottae and the infection by R. frenatus is the first record of the occurrence this pentastomid species in Brazil, in which the high parasitism rate was associated to the feeding habits of geckos living in houses and buildings.

Infection rates of pentastomids on lizards in urban habitats in the Brazilian northeast.

The rates of pentastomid infections in the syntopic lizards Hemidactylus mabouia and Tropidurus hispidus inhabiting buildings at the Federal University of Paraiba, in João Pessoa, NE Brazil were

Further observations of blunt-hooked pentastomids belonging to the genus Raillietiella Sambon, 1910 infecting Hemidactylus brookii (Sauria: Gekkonidae) in Africa and the Caribbean: comparison with closely related Raillietiella spp. from an African skink (Mabuya perrotetii)

Analysis of another raillietiellid population from an African skink (Mabuya perrotetii) is included because it harbours two more species which are not easily distinguished from R. frenatus and R. teagueselfi, and it remains unclear as to whether these are endemic or introduced.

Raillietiella trachea n. sp., a pentastomid from the trachea of an oriental white-backed vulture Gyps bengalensis taken in Pakistan, with speculation about its life-cycle

It is surmised that the life-cycle of R. trachea has to be direct and that parasite behaviour is an integral part of parasite transmission, and the evidence suggests that transmission is from vulture-to-vulture, per os.

A parasitological evaluation of edible insects and their role in the transmission of parasitic diseases to humans and animals

From 1 January 2018 came into force Regulation (EU) 2015/2238 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015, introducing the concept of “novel foods”, including insects and their

An Arthropod Intermediate Host of a Pentastomid

It is particularly interesting to record that no larval pentastomid has ever been found in an invertebrate and that, on the other hand, many species of warm-blooded animals can act as intermediate hosts of reptilian parasites.

Experimental life-cycle studies of Raillietiella gehyrae Bovien, 1927 and Raillietiella frenatus Ali, Riley and Self, 1981: pentastomid parasites of geckos utilizing insects as intermediate hosts

SUMMARY The life-cycles of two closely related cephalobaenid pentastomids, Raillietiella gehyrae and Raillietiella frenatus, which utilize geckos as definitive hosts and cockroaches as intermediate

Development of Porocephalus crotali (Humboldt, 1808) (Pentastomida) in experimental intermediate hosts.

Eggs of Porocephalus crotali from the lungs of Louisiana Agkistrodon piscivorus were administered by gavage to albino rats which were sacrificed at weekly intervals over a period of 6 months to determine the course of development of this pentastomid within the intermediate host.

A revision of the taxonomy of the blunt-hooked Raillietiella, pentastomid parasites of African, South-East-Asian and Indonesian lizards, with a description of a new species

By using comparative hook data and a standardized annulus counting procedure, it is shown that at least three of the earlier described Raillietiella with blunt tips to the posterior hooks are valid and a new species, R. frenatus, is described.

Experimental studies on the life cycle of a lizard pentastomid.

Evidence that the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana, is an intermediate host of the gecko pentastomid, Raillietiella hemidactyli, in Singapore is provided.

A revision of the taxonomy of Raillietiella boulengeri (Vaney & Sambon, 1910) Sambon 1910, R. orientalis (Hett, 1915) Sambon, 1922 and R. agcoi Tubangui & Masiluñgan, 1956 (Pentastomida: Cephalobaenida)

It is shown that all three Raillietiella species are valid and autoreinfection, which was thought to be important in natural transmission, may be linked with pathology of the host induced by trauma associated with captivity.
