Oligacanthorhynchid acanthocephalan cystacanths in the Yaqui blackhead snake, Tantilla yaquia (Serpentes: Colubridae) from Arizona



Oligacanthorhynchid acanthocephalan cystacanths in the Yaqui blackhead snake, Tantilla yaquia (Serpentes: Colubridae) from Arizona



Journal of the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science, 372: 83-84



Cystacanths of oligacanthorhynchid Acanthocephala are reported for the first time from the Yaqui blackhead snake, Tantilla yaquia. Oligacanthorhynchid acanthocephalans are parasitic as adults in terrestrial mammals and birds; snakes can serve as paratenic (transport) hosts. Development of cystacanth to adult occurs when a paratenic host is eaten by an appropriate definitive host. Tantilla yaquia is the ninth snake species from Arizona reported to harbor oligacanthorhynchid cystacanths and represents a new host record.
