Seuratoidea gen. sp.

are a disparate group of helminth genera, that are thought to connect the Cosmocercoidea to the advanced Ascaridida  or Spirurida ( Chabaud 1978)  . Le-Van-Hoa (1966) experimentally found the intermediate hosts of Seuratum nguyenvanaii  , a parasite of the house shrew in Vietnam, were the cockroaches Blatta orientalis  and Periplaneta americana  . Seuratoidea gen. sp. in C. biocellata  and C. grismeri  are new host records.
