Abstract
Cysticercoides menidiae Chandler, 1935, described as a metacestode of an unknown dilepidid cestode from the intestinal wall and mesenteries of the silversides Menidia menidia (Pisces: Atherinidae), from Galveston Bay, Texas, was found to be conspecific with Ascodilepis transfuga (Krabbe, 1869), a tapeworm described from the spoonbill, Platalea ajaja Linnaeus (syn. Ajaja ajaja), from Brazil. Consequently, C. menidiae becomes a junior synonym of A. transfuga.
