The morphology of the two little-known fish cestodes of the genus Khawia Hsü, 1935, K. rossittensis (Szidat, 1937) and K. parva (Zmeev, 1936) from cyprinid fishes, were studied on the basis of newly collected specimens from goldfish Carassius auratus auratus (L.) and museum specimens, respectively. This paper provides the first detailed species diagnosis for K. rossittensis from Slovakia, which is compared with specimens from different geographical regions and K. parva, a somewhat similar Far… CONTINUE READING
