Pentastomiase em roedor da Bahia, identificação de Porocephalus larvares

Amilcar Arandas Rego


RESUMO

Foram recentemente descritas ninfas de pentastomídeos em roedor cricetídeo, Zigodontomys pixuma, identificadas erroneamente como pertencentes à espécie Armillifer moniliformis. O presente trabalho sugere tratar-se de Porocephalus,possivelmente P.crotali (Humboldt, 1808).

ABSTRACT

This note criticizes a misidentification of pentastomid nymphs identified as Armillifer moniliformis, found in a wild rodent, Zygogontomys pixuna from Bahia State. It is demonstrated that these nymphs belong to Porocephalus, probably P. crotali 9Humboldt, 1808).
