status

 

Hedruris Nitzch, 1821 

Hedruris mucronifer Schuurmans Stekhoven, 1952 

Host and record: Telmatobius schreiteri Vellard, 1946 (Tu)  . Site of infection: Stomach.

Material deposited: CH-FML not specified number.

References: Schuurmans Stekhoven (1952).

Life cycle: The species that parasitize anurans and salamanders exhibit extreme precocity, i.e. they develop into immature adults in isopod intermediate hosts and this probably accelerates the production of gametes in the final hosts ( Anderson 2000).
