ABSTRACT

 

The nematodes Seuratum kuwuitensis n.sp. and Spirura auriti n.sp. and the cestode Mathevotaenia skrjabini are described and illustrated from specimens collected from the gut of the hedgehog, Hemiechinus auritus in Kuwait. Seuratum Kuwaitensis from the intestine is close to S.tacapense but differs from it in the measurements of the various organs, the reduced number of longitudinal rows of cuticular spines in the male, the forked tips of the spicules, the triangular mouth opening and the presence of denticles on its rim as well as in the shape of the gubernaculum. Spirura auriti from the stomach is near to S. rytipleurites  but differs from it in the structure of the cephalic region, the smaller size of the spicules, the proportional difference between the two spicules and the smaller size of the gubernaculum and eggs. The cestode Mathevotaenia skrjabini from the intestine is redescribed and reported from Kuwait for the first time.
