The microanatomic arrangement of the muscular, nervous, and excretory systems as well as the organization of the tegument are described for the rostellum ofHymenolepis diminuta. An inner circular and an outer longitudinal layer of muscle comprise the rostellar capsule, delimiting the rostellum from the scolex proper. A similar muscular arrangement surrounds an apical invagination of the rostellar tegument, the anterior canal. Elements of the excretory and nervous systems enter the rostellum… Expand
Ultrastructure of the early rostellum of Silurotaenia siluri (Batsch, 1786) (Cestoda: Proteocephalidae)
TLDR
The neodermis of the whole early rostellum of Silurotaenia siluri (Batsch, 1786) bears filamentous microtriches and Eccrine gland cells and uniciliate and nonciliate sensory receptors of the primitive roostellum are described. Expand
Morpho-functional characteristics of the scolex of Wardium chaunense (Cestoda: Aploparaksidae) penetrated into host intestine
TLDR
The scoleces of Wardium chaunense penetrated into the intestinal wall of a snipe were examined by light and transmission electron microscopy for the first time and it is suggested that the scolex attachment method has the tendency of ‘anchoring’, which is an irreversible attachment used by some cestode parasites of the snipe. Expand
Ultrastructure of the scolex of Orygmatobothrium schmittii (Cestoda: Phyllobothriidea)
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the scolex of Orygmatobothrium schmittii was studied and a particular type was found surrounding the glandulomuscular organ, which might be related in the regulation of the secretions. Expand
The fine structure and possible functions of scolex gland cells inTrilocularia acanthiaevulgaris (Cestoda, tetraphyllidea)
TLDR
It is suggested that the secretion probably acts as an adhesive, aiding attachment of the worm to the host mucosa, and may be more important in juvenile worms which have less well-developed scoleces. Expand
Histochemical, cytochemical and autoradiographic studies on the rostellum ofHymenolepis diminuta
TLDR
The function of the secretory glycoprotein(s) produced in the rostellar tegument and its (their) possible role in the regulation of maturation and/or strobilization remain enigmatic. Expand
Development and dynamics of regional specialization within the syncytial epidermis of the rat tapeworm,Hymenolepis diminuta
TLDR
Examination of labeling patterns after colchicine treatment suggests that different types of perikarya are specialized for biosynthesis of specific tegumentsal molecules and for turnover or recycling of tegumental material. Expand
Ultrastructural studies of internuncial processes in the tegument of a cyclophyllid cestode Raillietina (Fuhrmannetta) echinobothrida, a parasite of country fowl Gallus domesticus
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopic observation reveals that the type, distribution, diameter, and overall characteristics of the IP along the zones of the strobila differ greatly. Expand
Hymenolepis folkertsi n. sp. (Eucestoda: Hymenolepididae) in the oldfield mouse Peromyscus polionotus (Wagner) (Rodentia: Cricetidae: Neotominae) from the southeastern Nearctic with comments on tapeworm faunal diversity among deer mice
A previously unrecognized species of hymenolepidid cestode attributable to Hymenolepis is described based on specimens in Peromyscus polionotus, oldfield mouse, from Georgia near the southeasternExpand
A confocal microscopy-based atlas of tissue architecture in the tapeworm Hymenolepis diminuta.
TLDR
A toolkit to facilitate characterization of loss-of-function perturbations using H. diminuta will enable a greater understanding of fundamental tapeworm biology that may elucidate new therapeutic targets toward the eradication of these parasites. Expand
Phylogeny of hymenolepidid cestodes (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) from mammalian hosts based on partial 28S rDNA, with focus on parasites from shrews
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis confirmed the major clades identified by Haukisalmi et al. (Zool Scr 39:631–641, 2010) based on analysis of 31 species and revealed novelties revealed, including the molecular evidence for the monophyly of Coronacanthus, the non-monophyletic status of Staphylocystis and the polyphyly of Stapelocystoides.

TLDR
The results suggest that the specific cholinesterase activity observed in these organisms can be correlated either with a neuromuscular function, or with the presence of neurosecretory glands and chemoreceptors. Expand

TLDR
Electron microscopy of the outer wall of the capsule of the eight-day old Hymenolepis diminuta cysticercoid shows it to be part of asyncytium, a separate cell type described and evidence is presented for its involvement in the formation of the basement layer and other fibrous components of the cystic wall.
