Abstract

Three species of Nadejdolepis from Tasmania, Australia, are described and illustrated. N. burgessi n. sp., a parasite of Charadrius ruficapillus, is 4-6 mm long, with rostellar nitiduloid hooks 63-66 μm long, a short evaginated cirrus 13-16 μm long with a short collar of thin spines 1 μm long, a narrow and tubular sclerotinoid vagina 40-50 long and 3-4 μm in diameter with a little ampulla 3-5 μm in diameter at the proximal end, and a membranous atrial segment with smooth, short (1 μm) and compact spines which are sometimes difficult to observe. N. smithi n. sp., a parasite of 40-50 long and 3-4 μm in diameter with a little ampulla 3-5 μm in diameter at the proximal end, and a membranous atrial segment with smooth, short (1 μm) and compact spines which are
