Thelazia rhodesi (Spirurida, Thelaziidae) is a parasite of ruminants, which causes ocular infections. Scanning electron microscopy was used to study the surface ultrastructure of adult worms of this nematode. At the anterior end of both sexes, the buccal opening was orbicular. Around the mouth, four pairs of cephalic papillae and two lateral amphids were seen. A pair of lateral cervical papillae was present. In the female, the vulva was located at the anterior part of the body, and the tail end… CONTINUE READING
