Summary Information
Taxonomic Classification Animalia / Platyhelminthes / Cestoda / Cycolophyllidae / Davaineidae / Cotugnia / Species:

(Classification of invertebrate species is an evolving discipline. The information in Wildpro has been carefully referenced to the source material, as far as possible. Readers requiring further clarification should consult the source materials and more recent publications. Classification information in Wildpro will be altered when clear and scientifically endorsed new information regarding taxonomic divisions becomes available to us.

This section is currently predominantly used in Wildpro to link different data types and demonstrate inter-relationships. It does not contain detailed information on the invertebrate organism itself.)
