Plagiorhynchidae

Plagiorhynchidae is a family of parasitic Acanthocephalan worms.

Species

Genera in Plagiorhynchidae are divided into three subfamilies: Plagiorhynchinae, Porrorchinae, and Sphaerechinorhynchinae.[1][a]

Plagiorhynchinae Meyer, 1931

Paralueheia Saxena & Gupta, 2008

  • Paralueheia guptai Saxena & Gupta, 2008

Species in Plagiorhynchus are divided into two subgenera: Plagiorhynchus and Prosthorhynchus.[2]

Plagiorhynchus Lühe, 1911

P. aznari was found infesting a long-billed curlew (Numenius americanus) from northern Mexico.[3]

Prosthorhynchus Kostylew, 1915

P. cylindraceus was found infesting the Austral thrush (Turdus falcklandii) in central Chile.[4] Janice Moore[5] discovered P. cylindraceus to be a parasite that infects an intermediate host, the terrestrial isopod Armadillidium vulgare, which alters its behavior and becomes more susceptible to P. cylindraceus' primary host, the European starling (Sturnus vulgaris).

Porrorchinae Golvan, 1956

L. inscripta was found infesting the Austral thrush (Turdus falcklandii) in central Chile.[4] It has also been found in the Puerto Rican lizard Anolis cristatellus.[6]

Sphaerechinorhynchinae Golvan, 1956

S. macropisthospinus has been found in the intestine of the tiger (Panthera tigris) and a water monitor (Varanus salvator) in Vietnam.[7]

Hosts

Plagiorhynchidae species parasitize a variety of hosts.
