Fine structure of body surface of Thelazia skrjabini (Nematoda: Spirurida, Thelaziidae)

Abstract

Thelazia skrjabini (Spirurida, Thelaziidae) is a parasite of cattle that causes ocular infections. Scanning electron microscopy was used to study the surface ultrastructure of adult worms of this nematode. At the anterior end of both sexes, the buccal opening was orbicular.
