A New Gestode, Anomotaenia caenodex sp. nov. from a Mistle Thrush, Turdus viscivorus viscivorus (L.)

  • D. F. Mettrick (a1) and M. Beverley Burton (a1)

Several specimens of this species were collected by one of us (M.B.B.) from the intestine of a Mistle Thrush, Turdus viscivorus viscivorus (L.) examined at Silwood Park, the field station of the Imperial College of Science and Technology. Detailed examination of this material has only recently been made, and it appears to represent a new species for which the name Anomotaenia caenodex is proposed.
