Abstract

THATCHER, Vernon E.. Bacciger pellonaen. sp. (Trematoda, Fellodistornidae) from a freshwater fish, Pellona castelnaeanaValenciennes of Rondônia State, Brazil. Acta Amaz. [online]. 1992, vol.22, n.4, pp.605-608. ISSN 0044-5967.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1809-43921992224608.

Bacciger pellonae n. ep. (Trematoda, Fellodistomidae) is described from the intestinal tract of a freshwater fish, Pellona castelnaeana Valenciennes, from the Brazilian state of Rondônia. The new species is similar to the type species of the genus, B. bacciger (Rudolphi, 1819) Nicoli, 1914, but differs from it in having a post-testicular, lobate ovary, intertesticular ceca and an acetabulum that is smaller than the genus to be reported from South America and the first from freshwater.

Keywords : Trematode; Fellodi stomidae; fish parasite; Rondônia; Brazil; Amazonia.
