Oswaldocruzia peruensis n. sp. (Nematoda, Trichostrongylina, Molineoidea), parasite of an Iguanidae from Peru

Description of Oswaldocruzia peruensis n. sp. parasite of Stenocercus roseiventris from Peru. O. peruensis belongs to the group of Oswaldocruzia spp. characterized by : (1) three spicular branches (blade, fork and shoe) with the fork subdivided at its distal extremity and the blade subdivided into many processes ; and (2) by a type II bursal pattern of rays 6, 8 and dorsal. The only closely related species, O. vaucheri Ben Slimane & Durette-Desset, 1993, a parasite of leptodactylids in Ecuador, differs by the presence of cuticular crests which undulate and by the shape of the cervical alae.
