Abstract

Echinocotyle capensis n.sp. is described from Cape shovelers (Anas smithii (Hartert)) and Cape teal (Anas capensis Gmelin) collected at Barberspan, Transvaal Province, Republic of South Africa. Echinocotyle capensis is a small cestode up to 1.62 mm long with 10 rostellar hooks 50–55 μm long. It most closely resembles Echinocotyle singhi Srivastava and Pandey, 1980 but has slightly longer rostellar hooks and a shorter cirrus sac, and lacks the vaginal sphincter present in E. singhi.
