Abstract

Meteterakis pursatensis n. sp. (Nematoda, Heterakidae) from the large intestine of Physignathus cocincinus (Squamata, Agamidae) is described and illustrated. Meteterakis pursatensis n. sp. represents the 21st Oriental species assigned to the genus, and is distinguished from other Oriental species by the distribution pattern of the genital papillae, 7 pairs, 1 pair anteriolateral to ventral sucker but within anterior limits of caudal alae, 1 pair medial to anterior fleshy papillae, 3 pair posterior medial to posterior papillae of anterior fleshy pair, 2 pair tandem, midway between ventral sucker and cloaca, and length of spicules (0.50–0.57 mm).
