Abstract

Monoecocestus diplomys sp. n. from the arboreal rat, Diplomys darlingi, is about 180 mm long and possesses a scolex 360 µ in width. Hooks and neck are absent. Genital pores alternate irregularly. The modified vagina lacks an external opening and forms a sac enveloping the cirrus pouch. This sac continues as an expanded tube to the Mehlis' gland. The entire structure is a seminal receptacle. The vas deferens is surrounded by supporting or glandular cells. Mature proglottids are narrow (3 mm) and the eggs are minute and covered with spines.
