The difference is such that the species can easily be distinguished in mixed infections (Schell SC. 1964. </span></span><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>Bunoderella</i></span></span><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>metteri</i></span></span><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-size: medium;"> gen and sp. n.
