Syngamus trachea, Syngamus merulae

Abstract

Most criteria for differentiating species within the genus Syngamus have been found to be highly variable. Because of this high variability in morphological characteristics, some investigators feel that many of the species within the genus Syngamus are synonyms of S. trachea. Morphological and experimental studies were conducted to ascertain the taxonomic status of S. merulae. Both morphological and experin1ental data indicated that S. merulae should be maintained as a separate species.
