VICENTE, J. Julio; PINTO, R. Magalhães  and  FARIA, Zara. Spirura delicata sp. n. (Spiruridae, Spirurinae) from Leontocebus mystax (Callithrichidae) and a check list of other Nematodes of some brazilian primates. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1992, vol.87, suppl.1, pp.305-308. ISSN 0074-0276.

Spirura delicata sp. n. from Leontocebus mystax (Six) is proposed and compared to S. guianensis (Ortlepp, 1924) Chitwood, 1938, S. michiganensis Sandground, 1935 and S. nayarani Mirza & Basir, 1938. Their differentiation is based mainly on the size and shape of spicules. Identification of nematode samples recovered from primates along 60 years and presently deposited in the Oswaldo Cruz Helmintological Collection is provided herein through a check list. Some of them are reported in new hsots and/or geographical regions.

Keywords : Nematodes; Spirura delicata sp. n.; Leontocebus mystax; primates; Brazil.
