The life cycle and morphology of Stemmatostoma pearsoni, gen. et sp. nov., with notes on the morphology of Telogaster opisthorchis Macfarlane (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae)



The life cycle and morphology of Stemmatostoma pearsoni, gen. et sp. nov., with notes on the morphology of Telogaster opisthorchis Macfarlane (Digenea: Cryptogonimidae)



Australian Journal of Zoology 342: 279-304



S. pearsoni n.g., n.sp. is described from the intestine of Leiopotherapon unicolor (type host) and Macquaria novemaculeata in Queensland. Stemmatostoma is placed within the Neochasminae and is distinguished by its long oesophagus, compact ovary, short caeca, pre-ovarian vitellaria, simple gonotyl and funnel-shaped oral sucker. The diagnosis of Neochasminae is emended and excludes Parspina, the New Zealand form.
