On Echinorhynchotaenia tritesticulata Fuhrmann, 1909 (Cestoda: Dilepididae), with remarks on its relationship

  • Ather H. Siddiqi


Echinorhynchotaenia tritesticulata is briefly redescribed and an emmended generic diagnosis is provided. Its affinities and geographical distribution are noted. Echinorhynchotaenia lucknowensisSingh, 1956 is reduced to synonymy with E. tritesticulata. The genus Echinorhynchotaenia now includes only two species: E. tritesticulata and E. furcouterina.
