Abstract

Cyclophyllidean cestodes from Australian birds are reported. Lapwingia adelaidae sp. n. from Lobibyx novaehollandae differs from L. reticulosa Singh, 1952, in having 20 rostellar hooks, each 20 µ long, compared with 22 hooks, each 45 to 48 µ long. Capiuterilepis australensis sp. n. differs from C. naja (Duj., 1845) in having rostellar hooks 40 µ long, compared with 52 to 56 long, and having a very large, persistent seminal receptacle, rather than a small ephemeral one. Capiuterilepis meliphagicola sp. n. differs from C. naja in having a strobila 90 to 105 mm long, compared with 10 mm long. It differs from C. australensis in having rostellar hooks 48 to 50 long rather than 40 long, and in having a strobila twice as long. Hemiparonia bancrofti (Johnston, 1912) comb. n. is redescribed. The scolex armature of Cyrocoelia australiensis (Johnston, 1910) Johnston, 1912, is described for the first time. Also reported and briefly discussed are Anoncotaenia arhyncha Fuhrmann, 1918; A. globata (Linstow, 1879) Cohn, 1900; Pseudochoanotaenia meliphagidarum (Johnston, 1911) Matevosyan, 1953; Raillietina polychalix (Kotlán, 1921) Fuhrmann, 1924; R. cacatuina (Johnston, 1913) Fuhrmann, 1924; Infula burhini Burt, 1939; Paronia trichoglossi (Linstow, 1888) Spasskii, 1951; and Hemiparonia cacatuae (Maplestone, 1922) Baer, 1925.
