Aplectana fusiforme Savazzini, 1928  (species inquirenda) Host and record: Leptodactylus latrans (Steffen, 1815)  (= L. ocellatus  ). Site of infection: Intestine.

Material deposited: Not specified.

References: Savazzini (1928).

Notes: Baker (1980 a) considered that the description of this species was inadequate; the presence of a paired row of large preanal papillae possibly corresponds to the plectanes typical of Cosmocerca  . This author considered this species as species inquirenda.
