  1. Eucestodes
    • True tapeworms
    • Cyclophyllidea
  2. Cotyloda
    • Pseudotapeworms
    • Disphyllobothriidea
  3. Tapeworm Morphology
    • Dorsoventrally flattened
    • long, ribbon shaped
    • Strobila - chain of independent, progressively maturing reproductive units "proglottids"
  4. Cestode Anatomy
    • Neck: behind scolex, germinal region of worm
    • Strobila: body of worm
    • Proglottids: segments from least mature to most mature at end of worm. each contains complete sets of male and female reproductive organs - hermaprodite
  5. Six types of metacestodes
    • Cysticercus
    • Cysticercoid
    • Coernus

  22. Taenia spp
    • larval stage within the eggshell is called an oncosphere
