Gasterophilus pecorum (Diptera: Gasterophilidae): an infrequent cause of massive gastric myiasis in the horse


, : Gasterophilus pecorum (Diptera: Gasterophilidae): an infrequent cause of massive gastric myiasis in the horse. Bulletin de la Societe Francaise de Parasitologie 8(2): 301-310

Parasitological examination of the stomachs of 3 horses from Umbria, Italy, showed them to have massive infestations of the 3rd larval instar of G. pecorum. Somewhat unusually, larvae of G. pecorum were far more numerous in these stomachs than larvae of G. intestinalis (a species with which G. pecorum is usually found in association).
