A record of gravid cestodes Bothriocephalus claviceps (Goeze, 1782) from the newts Triturus vulgaris (L.) (Amphibia)



A record of gravid cestodes Bothriocephalus claviceps (Goeze, 1782) from the newts Triturus vulgaris (L.) (Amphibia)



Folia Parasitologica 37(3): 283-284



B. claviceps was recovered from the intestines of 6 of 39 newts (T. vulgaris) collected from a small pond in South Bohemia, Czech Republic. Four of the 14 cestodes recovered in total were adults with gravid segments containing ova in the uterus. This is believed to be the first record of B. claviceps from a non-fish host and a description is briefly given. 13 eels (Anguilla anguilla) from the same locality were also examined and 4 were found to be infected with B. claviceps.
