REDISCCRIPTION OF ENTOMOPARASITIC NEMATODE THELASTOMA BULHOESI (DE MAGALHES,1900) FROM AMERICAN COCKROACH PERIPLANETA AMERICANA (LINNAEUS,1758) (BLATTEDAE:BLATTIDAE) IN AURANGABAD .

Gavali S. V., Dr. Ashok Mote

Abstract


The American cockroach periplaneta americana is found worldwide and successfully adapted to living
with humans. It is carrier of many disease causing parasites. There are many reports of thelastomatid
parasitic nematodes isolated from P.americana in many countries. Cockroaches collected from diffferent localities of
Aurangabad. Thelastoma bulhoesi polulation was detected from hind gut of P.americana. The morphological characterization of
entomoparasite is compaired with previous record.


Keywords
