Adults of the caryophyllaeid cestodes Glaridacris catostomi, Hunterella nodulosa, Monobothrium hunteri and Monobothrium ingens were recovered from naturally infected fishes. The oligochaete annelid intermediate hosts were experimentally infected with embryonated eggs of these cestodes. Fully developed procercoids were characterized by a scolex similar to that of the adult, also by a cercomer and primordia of reproductive organs.
