Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract Physaloptera tupinambae n. sp. (Nematoda: Physalopteridae) collected from the stomach of 1 Tupinambis merianae (Squamata: Teiidae) male lizard is described. Physaloptera tupinambae, which belongs to didelphys gourp, is the only species in the genus that exhibits a bipartite internal tooth, with the excretory pore anterior to the deirids. The new species can be differentiated form the other congeneric mainly based on number and pattern of caudal papillae, and length and shape of spicules. Physaloptera murisbrasiliensis and P. clausa orientalis are the only physalopterids with the same number of caudal papillae as for P. tupinambae, but they differ from the new species in pattern and morphology of caudal papillae, and length and shape of spicules. Based on morphological analysis, the speciation process among Physaloptera probably occurred via host capture, and P. tupinambae occupies an intermediate phylogenetic position in the genus. Most likely, the new parasite is acquired by the lizard through ingestion of an intermediate host. Physaloptera calotisi, Physaloptera funambuli, Physaloptera guptae, Physaloptera indica, Physaloptera johnsoni, Physaloptera kherai, and Physaloptera thaparus were moved to Abbreviata.
