Abstract

The digestive apparatus of the parasitic crustacean copepod, Lernaea cyprinacea L., from copepodid I to metamorphosed female is described. Histological examination of the various parts of the digestive apparatus was carried out and the mouth parts were also analyzed by means of scanning electron microscopy. In vivo observations were also carried out in order to clarify the motions of the gut. The relationship between the morphology of the digestive apparatus and the feeding habits is discussed.
