OVERSTREET, Robin M.; HEARD, Richard W.  y  LOTZ, Jeffrey M.. Microphallus fonti sp. n. (Digenea: Microphaliidae) from the red swamp crawfish in southern United States. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1992, vol.87, suppl.1, pp.175-178. ISSN 0074-0276.

A new species of digenean, Microphallus fonti, is described from the red swamp crawfish in Lousiania, U.S.A. It has a small pharynx and a rudimentary gut like M. opacus and a possibly related species from crayfishes, but it differs from them by its relatively large male copulatory papilla and a conspicuous metraterm.

Palabras clave : Microphallus fonti; digenean; Procambarus clarkii; crayfish.
