On the Identity of the Kidney Worm of Pigs in New South Wales

  • T. W. M. Cameron (a1) and I. Clunies Ross (a2)

Extract

In 1839 Diesing described Stephanurus dentatus from the kidney of the pig. His description was incorrect in two important particulars, viz.— in stating that only one spicule was present and that the vulva was in the middle of the body instead of posteriorly. These errors, although corrected by Verril in 1870 and Louise Taylor in 1899, still persist, and it was on account of this that Drabble, in 1922, basing his diagnosis on a faulty text-book description, claimed that the Kidney worm of swine in New South Wales was generally distinct from Stephanurus dentatus. This worm he called Sclerostomum renium, n. sp.
