Abstract

The cestode fauna was examined in 110 Sorex unguiculatus, 6 S. caecutiens saevus and 12 S. gracillimus collected in Hokkaido, Japan, in 1974 and 1987. Nine species of HYMENOLEPIDIDAE and one species of DILEPIDIDAE with armed rostellum were identified, and the prevalence in Sorex unguiculatus was as follows ; Neoskrjabinolepis schaldybini (35.5%), N. singularis (40.0%), Neoskrjabinolepis sp. (0.9%), Staphylocystis furcata (23.6%), S. toxometra (12.7%), Lineolepis skrjabini (1.8%), Skrjabinacanthus diplocoronatus (11.8%), S. jacutensis (one case of S. gracillimus), Pseudodiorchis prolifer (17.3%), and Molluscotaenia baicalensis (38.2%). Additionally, the number, length and arrangement of rostellar hooks of S. diplocoronatus SPASSKY et MOROSOV, 1959 were redescribed.
