Abstract

Larval stages (metacestodes) of 2 dilepidid tapeworms (Eucestoda: Cyclophyllidea) are reported from the mesenteries and liver of the mummichog Fundulus heteroclitus and striped killifish Fundulus majalis from South Carolina, U.S.A. Cyclustera ibisae (Schmidt and Bush, 1972) is reported for the first time from a fish intermediate host, whereas metacestodes of Glossocercus caribaensis (Rysavy and Macko, 1973) (syn. Parvitaenia heardi Schmidt and Courtney, 1973) have only recently been found in fish from southeastern Mexico (Yucatan).
