In the present report metacestodes were collected from the mesentery of a taruca (Hippocamelus antisensis) and from the omentum of a red brocket deer (Mazama americana) in Peru. Various metacestodes parameters, including rostellar hook characteristics, were measured. Molecular analysis was performed to amplify the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene from metacestode isolates. Metacestodes were identified as T. hydatigena by morphology and molecular methods. This constitutes the… Expand
The alpaca (Vicugna pacos) as a natural intermediate host of Taenia omissa (Cestoda: Taeniidae).
This report is the first to detect T. omissa metacestodes in alpacas and to reveal thatAlpacas are natural intermediate hosts for this parasite. Expand
First Molecular Identification of Taenia hydatigena in Wild Ungulates in Poland
Molecular analysis revealed similarities between the metacestodes isolated from the wild mammals in the present study to T. hydatigena in European wolves and it is possible that infection of moose and wild boar with T.Hydatigenna metacstode is related to the growth in the wolf population in Europe.

Morphometric, genetic diversity and phylogenetic analysis of Taenia hydatigena (Pallas, 1766) larval stage in Iranian livestock
The genetic variants of C. tenuicollis are being undoubtedly distributing mostly in different parts of Iran, and further studies with a larger number of T. hydatigena isolates are needed to study this evolutionary assumption. Expand
Molecular and Morphological Characterization of Cysticercus tenuicollis in Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) from Turkey
This study provides the first morphological, histopathological, and molecular data on C. tenuicollis isolated from red deer in Turkey. Expand
Endoparasites of Selected Native Non-Domesticated Mammals in the Neotropics (New World Tropics)
A large majority of the studies concluded that these animals were reservoirs for parasites that could affect domesticated livestock. Expand
Massive Taenia hydatigena Cysticercosis in a Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) from Italy
The findings suggest that wild boar could be involved in the epidemiology of T. hydatigena, due to the significant amount of boar raw offal available to definitive hosts (i.e., hunting dogs, foxes and wolves), during the hunting seasons. Expand
Molecular Characterization and Phylogeny of Taenia hydatigena and Echinococcus granulosus from Iranian Sheep and Cattle Based on COX1 Gene.
The present study showed that the dominant genotype in all isolates was G1 and this report was similar to other studies in Iran and the world. Expand
Infestation of small ruminants by the metacestode stage of Taenia hydatigena in slaughterhouse, North East Tunisia
Since, in small ruminants, the infestation by C. tenuicollis indicators are not high, low cost control measures should be implemented to eliminate this parasite in Northeast Tunisia. Expand
Infection rate and biochemical characterization of Cysticercus tenuicollis from sheep in Minoufiya governorate, Egypt.
PCR and sequence analysis of cox1 and ssrRNA showed that the sequences from Minoufiya, Egypt were highly identical to the related ones from several countries and confirmed the cyst is Cysticercus tenuicollis. Expand
Sobre algunos helmintos parásitos de la taruca, Hippocamelus antisensis (Mammalia: Artiodactyla)
En el presente estudio se da a conocer tres especies de helmintos parasitos colectados de una taruca (Hippocamelus antisensis) en el Peru, y un hallazgo de T. axei representa el primer registro para la taruca. Expand


Taenia arctos n. sp. (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea: Taeniidae) from its definitive (brown bear Ursus arctos Linnaeus) and intermediate (moose/elk Alces spp.) hosts
The independent status of the new species and the conspecificity of its adults and metacestodes have been recently confirmed by the mtDNA sequence data and the analysis includes potentially useful morphometric features that have not been previously applied to Taenia spp. Expand
Helminthological screening of free-ranging grey brocket deer Mazama gouazoubira Fischer, 1817 (Cervidae: Odocoileini) from Brazilian Pantanal wetlands, with considerations on Pygarginema verrucosa (Molin, 1860) Kadenatzii, 1948 (Spirocercidae: Ascaropsinae).
The helminthfauna of ten free-ranging adult Mazama gouazoubira from the Paiaguás sub-region are described, suggesting an adaptation of bovine parasites to this host. Expand
Intestinal parasites of the grey fox (Pseudalopex culpaeus) in the central Peruvian Andes.
The grey fox may not be a suitable definitive host for E. granulosus, however, it may act as a sylvatic reservoir of T. hydatigena and T. multiceps in the central Peruvian Andes. Expand
Cysticerci (Cestoda: Taeniidae) from white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus, in southern Florida.
Metacestodes (cysticerci) of Taenia omissa Lühe, 1910, and Taenia hydatigena Pallas, 1776, were found in 9 and 1 of 124 white-tailed deer, respectively, in southern Florida in 1984-1986. IntensitiesExpand
Helminths of nine species were identified from 39 cougars obtained in northeastern Oregon, and undeveloped cestodes of the genus Taenia in 26 animals had lost rostellar hooks and could not be identified. Expand
Endoparasites of the Coyote (Canis latrans), a Recent Migrant to Insular Newfoundland
