A new anophlocephalid cestode from the gerbil

  • Guta Wertheim (a1)


A new cestode of unusual anatomical characteristics was collected from a group of Gerbillus pyramidum caught in August 1953, in the vicinity of Tel Aviv. It appears to be a new species of a new genus for which the name of Rajotaenia gerbilli n.g. n.sp. is proposed. Thanks are due to Mr M. Costa for collecting the infected rodents.
