APOPHALLINAE

APOPHALLINAE

There are three representatives of this subfamily that have been reported from cats. Some might consider the two species Apophallusdonicus and Apophallusvenustus the same species. These two species are not uncommon in cats that eat fish. The other species, Apophallusmuehlingi is probably a parasite of gulls that is capable of developing in the cat under appropriate conditions.
