The life cycle and morphology of Ascaridia columbae (Gmelin, 1790) Travassos, 1913 (Nematoda: Ascarididae) in the domestic pigeon (Columba livia domestica)

Journal of Parasitology. 50: 1, 131-137

First-stage larvae of Ascaridia columbae appear in the eggs in 12 to 15 days and the first moult takes place within the egg 4 to 5 days later.
