Abstract

Retinometra albeolae n.sp. is described from bufflehead ducks (Bucephala albeola L.) from Manitoba, Canada. It is armed with eight skrjabinoid rostellar hooks 69–75 μm long, and has a cirrus sac 240–480 μm long that extends to approximately the midline of mature proglottids, a trilobed ovary, and a lobed vitelline gland. Staphylepis indica and Staphylepis meggitti, currently included in the genus Retinometra, are returned to Staphylepis on the basis of proglottid morphology and the apparent lack of a cirrus stylet in both species.
