Abstract: ABSTRACT.A new species, Hexamermis paranaense n. sp. (Nematoda, Mermithidae), a parasite of larvae of Diloboderus abderus Sturm, 1826 (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae) is described and illustrated. This new species is characterized by amphids small, amphidial opening pocket-shaped, the anterior portion of the vagina muscularized and slightly protruding with a descending branch forming a loop before joining the uterus, and three rows of genital papillae: the ventrolateral divided in two rows with eight papillae in the… Show more

“…The sequences we established are similar to ones from Agamermis and Hexamermis, which build a monophylum within the Mermithidae (Park et al, 2011;Kubo et al, 2016). Both Agamermis and Hexamermis have been reported from a broad range of insect hosts (e.g., Achinelly & Camino, 2008;Stubbins et al, 2016; and references therein) but, as far as we know, not from ants (Poinar, 2012 and Web of Science queries on 20 November 2018). However, despite the high similarity to Agamermis and Hexamermis, uncertainty remains, in that of the safely identified recent mermithid genera found in ants (Poinar, 2012), two (Allomermis, Pheromermis) are represented in GenBank (Nucleotide query of 21 November 2018) but not the other four (Agamomermis, Camponotimermis, Comanimermis, Meximermis).…”
