Redescription Of Ophidascaris Labiatopapillosa Walton, 1927, An Ascarid Parasite Of North American Snakes



Redescription Of Ophidascaris Labiatopapillosa Walton, 1927, An Ascarid Parasite Of North American Snakes



Journal of Parasitology 49: 765-770



Ophidascaris labiatopapillosa Walton, 1927, was collected from Natrix sipedon sipedon in Michigan, Heterodon platyrhinos platyrhinos and Natrix cyclopion cyclopion in Louisiana, and Lampropeltis getulus in Florida. The worms were threaded by a single loop of the body through or deep into the stomach mucosa, with both ends extending into the lumen. Among 25 described species of Ophidascaris, this species of which the female is redescribed and the male described for the first time most closely resembles O. filaria (Dujardin, 1845) Baylis, 1921, the type of the genus. However, the latter is a parasite of pythonid snakes and the infective larvae develop in small mammals, whereas the former has been found only in colubrid snakes and the infective larvae develop in Amphibia.
