The life cycle of Prostlwrhynchus formosus (Van Cleave, 1918) Travassos, 1926 is presented. The terrestrial isopods Amwdillidium vulgare, Porcellio laevis, and P. scaber served as experimental intermediate hosts, and chickens and turkeys as experimental definitive hosts. After ingestion of the eggs by the isopod, the acanthor emerges from its shells within 15 min to 2 hr, enters the gut wall of its host, and remains there 15 to 25 days. It then migrates to the hemocoel and develops through the… Expand
