Abstract: Previous descriptions of larval philometrids and camallanids are based on observation from light microscopy. First-stage larvae of Camallanus oxycephalus, Philometra cylindracea, and Philometra sp. were examined by electron microscopy to determine whether differences seen in adult structure also occur in the larvae, allowing for identification of larval stages in the intermediate and definitive hosts. Similarities in larval structure supported some speculation as to the possible evolutionary link between these genera and their corresponding families.
