 en On Two Nematodes from Brazilian Birds and Description of a New Species (Acuarioidea, Schistorophinae) Parasitizing Laterallus viridis (Müller, 1776) (Gruiformes, Rallidae)
Pinto, Roberto Magalhães; Vicente, Joaquim Júlio; Muniz-Pereira, Luís C & Noronha, Dely


The present paper reports acuarioid nematodes recovered from avian hosts. A new species of the genus Schistorophus Railliet, 1916 is proposed based mainly on findings referring to ptilina, spicules and vagina. Ancyracanthopsis coronata (Molin, 1860) Chabaud & Petter, 1959 is referred again in Brazil since its proposition in 1860, from specimens recovered from a Brazilian bird. A revised key to the species of the genus Schistorophus is also presented.
