  author={D. Rawson and J. E. Rigby},
1. Four stages in the development of Choanotaenia crassiscolex are described with the help of five text figures and one plate. 2. The functional anatomy of the cysticercoid is given with the help of diagrams. 3. The identification is based on comparisons with material at the British Museum of Natural History, South Kensington, London, and comparison is made with earlier records in Table 1. 4. The unusual cyclophyllidean scolex is discussed and tentative suggestions and queries concerning the… Expand
Detailed study of the life cycle and the anatomy, histology and functioning of the alimentary and reproductive systems of Oxychilua cellariua (Muller) lead one to regard this snail as a typical andExpand
The morphology of hymenolepidid and dilepidid cestodes from common and pygmy shrews (Soricidae) in southeast England.
One hundred and six of 109 common shrews and 62 of 72 pygmy shrews obtained by Longworth trapping in Southeast England were infected with cestodes, and cysticercoids of H. schaldybini in the staphylinid beetle, Anthobium unicolor. Expand
Distribution of the cestode Urocystis prolifer Villot, 1880 (Cyclophyllidea: Hymenolepididae) in the Palaearctic and new data on its postembryonic development
Abstract Urocystis prolifer Villot, 1880 is an intestinal parasite of Sorex spp. In the Palaearctic. There are significant differences in the descriptions of both adults and stages of ontogenesis ofExpand

Successful cultivation of the oncosphere and other larval stages has produced much of this new information about the physiology of larval cestodes with the help of histochemistry and electron microscopy, information that facilitates more precise placing of these cestode parasites in the whole zoological system and improves the understanding of host-parasite relationships.

Observations on the histology and histochemistry ofPenetrocephalus plerocercoid (Pseudophyllidea: Cestoda)
The histology of plerocercoid ofPenetrocephalus sp. reveal that the body surface consists of tegument, basement membrane, epidermal longitudinal musculature, parenchymatic longitudinal musculature,Expand
The terminology of larval cestodes or metacestodes
The terminology associated with the nomenclature of larval or metacestodes is reviewed as well as the various morphological and developmental characters used to define different types of larvalExpand
Ontogeny of cestodes and its bearing on their phylogeny and systematics.
It is discussed that more data are required before a complete pattern of cestode ontogeny can emerge, and already available data show that metacestodes follow recognizable patterns of growth, which help in establishing taxonomic relationships between cestodes. Expand
Studies on the helminth parasites of voles and shrews from Wales
One species of nematode showed evidence of seasonal variation in the degree of infestation of Clethrionomys glareolus and four species, one digenean, two cestodes and one acantocephalan in Sorex araneus are discussed. Expand
The microanatomy and fine structure of the rostellum ofHymenolepis diminuta
The microanatomic arrangement of the muscular, nervous, and excretory systems as well as the organization of the tegument are described for the rostellum of Hymenolepis diminuta, which includes a single bilateral pair of ganglia which provide motor innervation of the anterior canal. Expand

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the advances in knowledge made in some aspects of the biology of post-embryonic stages of cestodes in the past 15 years. It summarizes the information onExpand


A New Type of Early Cysticercoid Stage in a Cyclophyllidean Cestode
The earliest stage of this cysticercoid is regarded as being pre-cystic and which, so far as the authors are aware, is unlike anything previously described. Expand

Abstract 1. 1. The growth and development of the cysticercoid of Hymenolepis nana, as observed in experimentally infected Tribolium confusum, have been described. 2. 2. Attempts to induce hatching ofExpand
On some British Larval Cestodes from Land and Fresh-water Invertebrate Hosts
Ten larval Cestodes, eight from aquatic and two from terrestrial hosts, have been described. Of these, eight species are new, and in the case of Cysticercus “A,” both larva and adult are new. ByExpand

1. Cestodes have a high carbohydrate content in the form of glycogen which is stored mainly in the parenchyma. The proportion of ether‐extractable material is also high and consists mainly ofExpand
Synthesis and reactions of vinyl ethers of ethanolamines communication 8. Vinyl ethers of 2-dimethylaminoethanol and 2-(2,5-dichloroanilino) ethanol
1. The vinyl ethers of 2- dirnethylamino ethanol and of 2-(2,5-dichloroanilino) ethanol were prepared, and some reactions of these ethers were investigated. 2. The reaction ofExpand
