On Dipetalonema manson-bahri n.sp., from the Spring-hare, Pedetes surdaster larvalis, with a Note on its Development in Fleas

  • George S. Nelson (a1)

1. The morphology of the adult worms and the microfilariae are described of a new species of filarial worm, Dipetalonema manson-bahri.

2. Dehpsylla crassipes Jordon, 192G, a flea specific to Pedetes surdasler, was found in nature to contain infective larvae which are believed to be those of D. manson-bahri.

3. In the laboratory full development of D. manson-bahri was observed in Ctenocephalides felis and Xenopsylla cheopis.
