Here, however, only the eggs near the metraterm
contained biocellate larvae, in contrast with the illustrations presented in the previous studies (Siddiqi and Cable, 1960; Hendrix and Overstreet, 1977; Bray, 1984), which depicted most of the eggs containing biocellate larvae.
Lightly muscular metraterm
reaches genital atrium close to the male genital papilla.
His proposition was based on the presence of a well defined oesophageal pouch and certain other differences such as the presence of a well developed globular pars prostatica, a highly muscular metraterm
and a protrusible ductus hermaphroditicus in the specimens, which otherwise resembled the genus Genarchopsis (syn.
somewhat sinous, penetrate from side of genital atrium and opens through female genital pore into genital atrium.
