Camallanus Railliet and Henry, 1915

(= Zeylanema Yeh, 1960 )

Camallanus sp. (larvae)

Host and record: Leptodactylus chaquensis Cei, 1950 (Co) , Lysapsus limellus Cope, 1862 (Co) . Site of infection: Small intestine.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 3042804 ( L. chaquensis ).

References: Kehr et al. (2000), Schaefer et al. (2006).

Life cycle: Species of this genus parasitize fishes that feed on aquatic invertebrates (principally copepods); their intermediate hosts ( Anderson 2000). Amphibians are probably accidental hosts in the life cycle of these nematodes.
