A new cyclophyllidean cestode Raillietina (Paroniella) delhiensis of guinea fowl (Numida sp.) from India

A new cyclophyllidean cestode Raillietina (Paroniella) delhiensis of guinea fowl (Numida sp.) from India

Indian Journal of Parasitology 6(1): 151-152

R. (P.) delhiensis n.sp. (3 specimens) were recovered from the intestine of a guinea fowl at a slaughterhouse in Delhi, India. It resembles R. (P.) tinguiana and R. (P.) parbata in having the same range of rostellar hooks (2 rows of 375 to 420 hooks) but differs by having fewer testes (10 to 12) and from the former by having shorter rostellar hooks (0.005 to 0.006 mm) and from the latter by having a larger cirrus sac (0.12 to 0.17 X 0.03 to 0.056 mm) and an armed cirrus.
