Redescription of Ascocotyle (Ascocotyle) felippei Travassos, 1928 (Digenea: Heterophiydae) with new synonymies.
J Parasitol. 2007 Dec; 93(6):1468-75.JP

Abstract

The heterophyid trematode Ascocotyle (Ascocotyle) felippei Travassos, 1928, is redescribed and new data on its life cycle are provided, based on types and metacercariae found in the heart bulb and gills of naturally infected guppies, Poecilia vivipara (new fish intermediate host), from a coastal lagoon in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Examination of the type and all voucher specimens of A. (A.) felippei collected by Travassos in the type host and locality in Brazil has shown that they possess only 32 (16 + 16) circumoral spines, rather than 36 (18 + 18) spines as previously reported. Based on the identical number and arrangement of circumoral spines, shape of the body, the presence of a long preoral lobe and posterior muscular prolongation of the oral sucker, short and wide ceca, a simple gonotyl lacking refractile bodies, and the site of infection of metacercariae (predominantly heart bulb), A. (A.) puertoricensis Price, 1932 and A. (A.) tenuicollis Price, 1935, are proposed as new synonyms of A. (A.) felippei.
