First report of the acanthocephalan Plagiorhynchus cylindraceus in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber



First report of the acanthocephalan Plagiorhynchus cylindraceus in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber



Comparative Parasitology uary; 71(1): 90-91



Terrestrial isopod populations were examined from 5 different sites on the Penn State-Altoona campus in Altoona, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Length and sex of each isopod were recorded before it was examined for acanthocephalan parasites. Three isopod species were found: Armadillidium vulgare, Porcellio scaber, and Oniscus asellus. The acanthocephalan parasite Plagiorhynchus cylindraceus was found in P. scaber from a single site (site prevalence, 2.5%). This is the first report of natural infection of P. scaber by P. cylindraceus.
