Example text

Feeding is by assimilating nutrients from the intestinal contents of the host. iii. There are male and female adult M. hirudinaceus worms, which copulate to fertilize the females’ eggs. Females then lay numerous embryonated eggs, which are deposited into nearby soil via the faeces of host pigs. The white larval grubs of Phyllophaga beetles (May or June beetles) eat these eggs. Soon after, the worm embryo (the acanthor) hatches from the egg and uses its blade-like hooks to cut through the gut of the beetle larva.

Eggs develop into infective larvae in the environment in 2–7 days. The life cycle can be direct through the oral intake of infected larvae or by cutaneous penetration, or indirect through consumption of larvae-infected earthworms. After ingestion, larvae migrate from the intestine throughout the body (particularly the liver) over a period of 4–6 months before they finally arrive at the kidneys to mature. The cycle from egg to adult takes up to 1 year and females lay large numbers of eggs each day.
