Abstract

A new unique anoplocephaline cestode having spinose tegument was described. Anoplocephaloides romerolagi sp. n. was found in the bile duct of a volcano rabbit, Romerolagus diazi, from Mexico. This species is related to A. floresbarroetae, but is differentiated by the alternative position of genital pores. The zoogeographical significance of Anoplocephaloides spp. of R. diazi and other leporids is discussed briefly.
