Porrocaecum Raillet and Henry, 1912 

(= Belanisakis Maplestone, 1932  ; = Porrocaecum (Laymanicaecum) Mozgovoi, 1951  , in part)

Porrocaecum  sp. (larvae)

Host and record: Rhinella schneideri (Werner, 1894) (Co)  , Leptodactylus chaquensis Cei, 1950 (Co)  . Site of infection: Liver, mesentery, gastric serous membrane.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 3091901 ( R. schneideri  ), CECOAL 0 3092418 ( L. chaquensis  ). References: Hamann et al. (2006 b), Schaefer et al. (2006), González & Hamann (2008). Life cycle: Amphibians serve as paratenic hosts that transfer the parasite to the carnivorous definitive hosts. The intermediate hosts of these nematodes are earthworms ( Anderson 2000).
