A taxonomic reconsideration of the genus Plagiorhynchus s lat , with descriptions of south African Plagiorhynchus cylindraceus from shore birds and P malayensis, and a key to the species of the subgenus Prosthorhynchus



A taxonomic reconsideration of the genus Plagiorhynchus s lat , with descriptions of south African Plagiorhynchus cylindraceus from shore birds and P malayensis, and a key to the species of the subgenus Prosthorhynchus



Journal of the Helminthological Society of Washington 66(2): 123-132



A population of Plagiorhynchus (Prosthorhynchus) cylindraceus (Goeze) Schmidt and Kuntz is described from 4 species of shore birds in South Africa. Specimens of 3 supposed synonyms of P. (P.) cylindraceus, namely P. (P.) formusus Van Cleave, P. (P.) taiwanensis Schmidt and Kuntz, and P. (P.) transversus (Rudolphi) Travassos, were studied and this synonymy was verified. The taxonomic status of Plagiorhynchus s. str. and of Prosthorhynchus was reconsidered, and both were retained as subgenera. Females of Plagiorhynchus (Prosthorhynchus) malayensis (Tubangui) Schmidt and Kuntz (nec malayense) are described for the first time; males are redescribed. A key to species of the subgenus Prosthorhynchus is provided.
