MELLO, ÉRICA M. DE; RABELO, ÉLIDA M.L.  and  SILVA, REINALDO J. DA. Urotrema macrotestis and Urotrema scabridum (Digenea: Urotrematidae) parasitizing bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) in Brazil. An. Acad. Bras. Ciênc. [online]. 2019, vol.91, n.1, e20180648.  Epub Mar 21, 2019. ISSN 1678-2690.

Urotrema scabridum Braun 1900 and Urotrema macrotestis Mané-Garzón and Telias 1965 are reported from the small intestine of Eumops glaucinus (Wagner, 1843). The species were differentiated by the body width, the size and position of acetabulum, the size of testis, the caecal termination, and the distribution of vitellarium. The present study expands the distribution and the hosts of both species in Minas Gerais State and reports U. macrotestis parasitizing bats for the first time.

Keywords : Eumops glaucinus; infection; Taxonomy; Trematoda.
