Our knowledge of adult stage of helminths is undoubtedly far more comprehensive than that of the larval stages. This is due not merely to the fact hat a larger number of workers has studied adult helminths but rather to the possession by the latter of more easily distinguishable characters. In comparison, larval helminths are difficult to study and identify owing to their small size and to the consequent obscurity of their structural details. It is, therefore, not surprising to find in the literature that the descriptions of larval helminths are sometime very brief and incomplete and this adds greatly to difficulties of their proper identification. Although much useful work has been done on larval helminths in Great Britain, our knowledge concerning them is still very inadequate. A majority of the investigators in Great Britain have concentrated on larval Nematoda, a few have studied larval Cestoda and larval Nematoda, but none, so far as the writer is aware, appears to have described larval Acanthocephala.
