1. The protozoa reported from animal-parasitic helminths are summarised in three tables, with a few comments on some of the more interesting forms. 2. The microsporidian found hyperparasitic in Moniezia expansa and M. benedeni of sheep in England, and Moniezia sp. from a buffalo calf in Pakistan has been found to be identical with Nosema helminthorum described by Moniez, 1887, Plistophora helminthophthora Labbé, 1899, and Nosema bischoffi, Weiser, 1951. The valid name for the organism is… 

Perezia helminthorum sp.nov., a microsporidian hyperparasite of trematode larvae from Malaysian snails

Amongst parasitic platyhelminthes three Microsporidia are named from cestodes and seven from trematodes. Those in cestodes are Nosema helminthorum Moniez, 1887, Glugea ghigii Guyenot & Naville, 1924

Transmission of Nosema eurytremae (microsporida: Nosematidae) to various trematode larvae

SummaryNosema eurytremae, a hyperparasite of trematode larvae, can easily be transmitted from one trematode species to another by feeding snails with spores. Hyperparasites from larvae of

Diversity, Distribution, and Development of Hyperparasitic Microsporidia in Gregarines within One Super-Host

The recent studies showed that diversity of metchnikovellids might be significantly higher than previously thought, even within a single host, and co-infection of one and the same gregarine with several species of met SchnikoveLLids has never been observed.

The morphology and life cycle of Nosema helminthorum Moniez, 1887

It is unlikely that the oribatid mite, which is the vector of Moniezia, plays any role in the transmission of Nosema helminthorum, and experimental studies suggest that the only possible part played by the mite is to carry the spores, accidentally swallowed by it, protecting them till they reach the adult worm already present in the intestine of the vertebrate host.

A new microsporidium Paratuzetia kupermani gen. et sp. N. (microsporidia), a hyperparasite of the procercoid of the cestode Khawia armeniaca Chol. 1915 (Cestoda, Caryophyllidea)

sp . n . ( Microsporidia ) , a hyperparasite of the procercoid of the cestode Khawia armeniaca Chol . 1915 ( Cestoda , Caryophyllidea ) L arisa

A new microsporidium Paratuzetia kupermani gen. et sp. n. (Microsporidia), the hyperparasite of the procercoid of the cestode Khawia armeniaca Chol. 1915 (Cestoda: Caryophyllidea), is described.

Trophic Interactions: Similarity of Parasitic Castrators to Parasitoids

An analysis of life history features of insect parasitoids and crustacean parasitic castrators suggests that these are similar trophic phenomena, distinct from parasitism and predation, and may be more widespread than is generaly considered.

Trichomonas Muris, Parasitic in the Oxyurid Nematodes, Aspicularis tetraptera and Syphacia obvelata, from White Mice

Trichomonas muris infections were encountered in the oxyurid nematodes Aspicularis tetraptera and Syphacia obvelata parasitic in laboratory white mice. More rarely infections with other protozoa were

This list summarizes a rather interesting historical sequence and may serve as a starting point for an analysis of the earlier reports of microsporidia from cestodes.

Emergence of the Sporoplasm in Nosema helminthorum

The mode of emergence of the infective sporoplasm from Microsporidian spores has baffled protozoologists for many years, and a protoplasmic globule is described at the tip of the extruded filament of the species studied by them.

AbstractTHE Nematode worms, although forming a large class which includes many economically important species, usually receive little attention in zoological textbooks. The appearance of a

The absence of opalinids from the adult green frog, Rana clamitans.

In the present investigation, experiments were conducted to determine if opalinids would live when transferred to adult Rana clamitans by cloacal injection, and results agree with Hegner (1932) who recovered a few opalinid from the rectum of 4 specimens of Ranas clamitans 2 or 3 days after inoculation.

Protozoan Hyperparasitism of Heterakis gallinæ

Inumerable experiments have shown that feeding embryonated Heterakis eggs to susceptible birds almost invariably results in a fatal infection of Histomonas; but all attempts to demonstrate the actual organism in the egg have proved futile.

PRODUCTION OF FATAL BLACKHEAD IN TURKEYS BY FEEDING EMBRYONATED EGGS OF HETERAKIS PAPILLOSA

It now seems highly probable that the turkey has become relatively resistant to the invasion of the protozoan parasite acting alone and that such invasion may require other agencies.

Enterohepatitis(blackhead) of turkeys.

Its occasional failure under field conditions and some uncertainty on the part of poultrymen regarding the most efficient and economical means of using the drug made further observations by this Division necessary.
