Allassostomoides chelydrae ( MacCallum, 1919)

Site of infection: rectum.

Recruitment: penetration.

Distribution: USA: Nebraska ( Brooks 1975b; Brooks 1976; Brooks et al. 2006a).

No specimens in collections.

Remarks: Some authors have been considered this species synonym of A. parvus ( Stunkard 1924; Travassos 1934; Skrjabin 1947); however, Yamaguti (1958, 1971) recognized it as a valid species. Allassostomoides chelydrae was re-described by Brooks (1975b) based on specimens from multiple host species.
