Larvae removed at one‐day intervals from laboratory infected intermediate hosts provided material for a comparative study of presomal development in Prosthorhynchus formosus (Van Cleave, '18) Travassos, '26, Prosthenorchis elegans (Diesing, 1851) Travassos, '15, and Moniliformis dubius Meyer, '33. Acanthellae begin development soon after entering intermediate hosts' hemocoels, and by the 18th day all three species possess three nuclear masses representing primordia of the proboscis, proboscis… Expand
