These keys will allow the scientific community to identify the species that infect the ostriches either based on the characteristics of the posterior end of the infective larvae found through a simple fecal exam or by observing the morphology and morphometry of adult worms recovered during necropsies.


Deletrocephalus dimidiatus infestation in an adult rhea (Pterocnemia pennata).
Preventive measures such as artificial incubation, segregation of chicks from adults, and placing chicks in uncontaminated environments may help slow or stop the transmission of the parasite.
