Abstract Three horsehair worms (Nematomorpha) are recorded from Nagaland, India. The first species is Chordodes combiareolatus, which was recently described from Nagaland. The second is Chordodes cf. furnessi, earlier reported from Meghalaya, and some new observations are added. The third is a new species, described as Beatogordius nagalandis sp. n. This is the first report of the genus Beatogordius in India and this observation fits well into the Gondwana distribution of the genus. The species… Expand
New Records of Horsehair Worms (Nematomorpha) from India and a Summary of All Known Indian Species
Twenty-one species of the phylum Nematomorpha from India have been described. In this paper, Acutogordius sulawensis is reported for the first time in this country, with new locality records of someExpand
Morphological and molecular characterization of Gordius, a horse hairworm recovered from cricket
A large number of the animals studied in this study had never been studied in the field of Veterinary Parasitology or Microbiology before, so the design of the methodology and its application to livestock production and management was very surprising. Expand
