The synonymy of Trichuris ovis (Abildgaard, 1795) and Trichuris globulosa (Von Linstow, 1901), has been confirmed by previous studies, and Trichuris ovis (Abildgaard, 1795) has been accepted as the unique valid species. A redescription of Trichuris ovis has been carried out, attending to the morphological and biometrical characteristics cited by different authors. Furthermore, isoenzymatic and molecular data for T ovis have been included.
