Title : IDENTIFICATION OF INFECTIVE LARVAE OF SOME COMMON NEMATODE STRONGYLIDS OF HORSES
Authors : C.M.L. BEVILAQUA, M. de L. RODRIGUES and D. CONCORDET.
Summary : The morphology of infective larvae of Strongylus vulgaris, Strongylus equinus, Strongylus edentatus, Triodontophorus spp., Poteriostomum spp. and Gyalocephalus capitatus infective larvae (L3) are examined. Morphometric data (total length, width, intestinal and esophageal length) of those larvae harvested from faecal cultures allow their differentiation in six distinct groups. Two in vitro cultivation media were experimented to obtain infective larvae of Cylicocyclus radiatus, Cylicocyclus nassatus, Cylicostephanus minutus and Cylicostephanus poculatus L3. A key for identification with photomicrographs is also provided to assist identification of the studied larvae.
Keywords : infective larvae - Strongylinae - Cyathostominae - larvae differentiation - horses.
