Stool: Taenia species –  Shipped September 23,2019 – FINAL RESULTS

Educational Highlights

  • Identification of Taenia to the species level is not possible from the eggs because their eggs are morphologically identical
  • There are approximately 45 species and nominal subspecies of Taenia, but humans are the only definitive hosts for T. saginata (beef tapeworm), T. solium (pork tapeworm) and T. asiatica (Asian tapeworm).
