On the Arthropod Intermediate Hosts of Hymenolepis diminuta (Rudolphi 1819)

  • J. N. Oldham (a1)

Hymenolepis diminuta (Rudolphi, 1819), a normal inhabitant of thesmall intestine of the rat and other rodents and occasionally to be foundin man, has* received attention from several investigators desirous ofcontributing knowledge towards the life history of this cestode. Asa result of these researches it is now a well established fact that severalarthropods belonging to the Lepidoptera, Dermaptera, Coleoptera, Siphonaptera and Myriapoda can function as intermediate hosts althoughthis wide range of vectors is somewhat unusual.
