The chimpanzee pinworm, Enterobius (Enterobius) anthropopitheci (Gedoelst, 1916) (Nematoda: Oxyuridae), is redescribed based on light and scanning electron microscopy of both sexes collected from the feces of chimpanzees, Pan troglodytes, of an introduced population on Rubondo Island, Tanzania. Enterobius (E.) anthropopitheci is characterized by having a small body (males 1.13–1.83 mm long, females 3.33–4.73 mm long), a rather straight spicule with a ventral membranous formation in males… 
CHIMPANZEE PINWORM, ENTEROBIUS ANTHROPOPITHECI (NEMATODA: OXYURIDAE), MAINTAINED FOR MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS IN CAPTIVE CHIMPANZEES IN JAPAN
TLDR
Analysis of pinworm specimens preserved in the institution revealed that transition of predominant pinworm species occurred, responding to the change of anthelmintics used for pinworm treatment, and scarcity of mixed infection with E. anthropopitheci suggests interspecific competition between the pinworms.
Two remarkable pinworms (Nematoda: Enterobiinae) parasitizing orangutan (Pongo abelii) in the Sumatra (Indonesia) including Lemuricola (Protenterobius) pongoi n.sp.
TLDR
Two species of pinworms (Enterobiinae) were collected from fresh faeces of semi-wild orangutans Pongo abelii Lesson living in northern Sumatra (Indonesia) and studied using scanning electron microscopy for the first time.
Enterobius (Enterobius) shriveri n. sp. (Nematoda: Oxyuridae: Enterobiinae) from Macaca fascicularis Raffles, 1821 (Primates: Cercopithecidae: Cercopithecinae) and Three Other Cercopitheciid Primate Species: With Additional Information on Enterobius (Enterobius) macaci Yen, 1973
ABSTRACT:  Four cercopitheciid primate species at an academic institution research facility within the United States were found infected with an Enterobius species that was morphologically and
A new nematode, Pongobius hugoti gen. et sp. n. from the orangutan Pongo abelii (Primates: Hominidae)
TLDR
Light and scanning electron microscopical examination and molecular analysis of pinworm samples collected from the Sumatran orangutan from Sumatra (Indonesia) revealed the presence of a new taxon, Pongobius hugoti gen. et sp.
Parasites Found From the Feces of Bornean Orangutans in Danum Valley, Sabah, Malaysia, with a Redescription of Pongobius hugoti and the Description of a New Species of Pongobius (Nematoda: Oxyuridae)
TLDR
Presence of plural species of non-Enterobius pinworms is a remarkable feature of the orangutan–pinworm relationship, which may reflect speciation process of theorangutans, host switching, and coevolution by pinworms.
Genetic analysis of Enterobius vermicularis isolated from a chimpanzee with lethal hemorrhagic colitis and pathology of the associated lesions
TLDR
Histopathologically examined the lesions in tissues from the deceased chimpanzee and genetically characterized the isolated worms to investigate the pathogenicity and determine the phylogeny, indicating that E. vermicularis could be pathogenic in chimpanzees.
Phylogenetic relationships between pinworms (Nematoda: Enterobiinae) parasitising the critically endangered orang-utan, according to the characterisation of molecular genomic and mitochondrial markers
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial CO1 and chromosomal 18S rDNA and ITS1 regions could support the independent status of several Nematoda species, and shows possible close relationships between L. (Protenterobius) pongoi and P. hugoti; thus, it can be assumed that these species could have initially diverged in sympatry from a common ancestor.
Population history of chimpanzees introduced to Lake Victoria's Rubondo Island.
TLDR
Chimpanzees released onto a large forested island free from predators or hunting pressure, habitat destruction and conspecific competition can form a self-sustaining island population without human support.

TLDR
Enterobius anthropopitheci can be distinguished from the two closely related species parasitic in man, E. vermicularis and E. gregorii Hugot, 1983, by the following characters: in the males, the cuticular pericloacal ornamentation, and the size and shape of the spicule; in the females, the lateral alae.

TLDR
The value of the hanging-drop technique as used by Professor Buckley for the examination of the different views of the tip of tail and head of small nematodes is stressed and the significance of the basal portion of the spicules is discussed.
Primates and their pinworm parasites: the cameron hypothesis revisited.
TLDR
A morphologically based cladistic analysis of the Enterobiinae allows a reevaluation of the Cameron's hypothesis of close coevolution with cospeciation between hosts and parasites and confirms the subgroups previously described in the subfamily and supports its aspect of association by descent.
GROWTH OF ENTEROBIUS VERMICULARIS IN A CHIMPANZEE AFTER ANTHELMINTIC TREATMENT
TLDR
The growth of Enterobius vermicularis in a chimpanzee was investigated by observing worms discharged in feces after administration of pyrantel pamoate, which effectively eradicated mature males, but gravid females were continuously observed in the feces after treatment.
Fatal infection with human pinworm, Enterobius vermicularis, in a captive chimpanzee
TLDR
A fatal infection with human pinworms, Enterobius vermicularis, was found in a 26‐year‐old chimpanzee kept in a zoo and there were areas of multifocal hyperemia and/or hemorrhages in various organs including the entire gastrointestinal tract.
The Fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma
TLDR
The general character of “The Fauna of British India” is so well known, and has been so frequently commented on, that it is only necessary to say that the present half-volume is similar to those which have preceded it, and that the high character of the series is fully maintained.
EFFECTS OF REPEATED ANTHELMINTIC TREATMENT ON ENTEROBIUS VERMICULARIS INFECTION IN CHIMPANZEES
TLDR
Effects of repeated treatment with pyrantel pamoate on Enterobius vermicularis infection in chimpanzees were assessed by observing worms discharged in the feces after administration of anthelmintic treatment, indicating that repeated treatment at short intervals was very effective.
