Abstract

Summary

The study of abundant material, both adult and immature forms from the trematode genus Telorchis, including four species new to science and others from new hosts and localities, has given data for the first general discussion of the genus yet made. The sub-genera Telorchis and Cercorchis proposed by Lühe intergrade and can not be retained. T. augustus and T. leptus if correctly described should be removed to an independent genus. The new and some older species are discussed in detail.
