Authors


Abstract

Descriptions are given of eight species of cestodes, representing five families, obtained from reptiles and amphibians in the Rhodesias. Ophiotaenia nigricollis sp. n. is described. The genus, Pseudocephalochlamys Yamaguti, 1959, is considered a synonym of Cephalochlamys Blanchard, 1908, and P. xenopi (Ortlepp, 1926) is considered a synonym of C. namaquensis.
