Red fox
Resumen: Metathelazia capsulata is a lungworm that inhabit in the bronchi and bronchioles from mammal carnivore species, which life cycle is unknown. M. capsulata-like spirurid nematodes were isolated at necropsy from the respiratory tract of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) from the Region of Murcia (SE Spain). The main objective of this study was to describe in detail the morphometric features of these nematodes, as well as to report some molecular markers. The principal morphometric difference compared to previous M. capsulata descriptions was the shorter total length for both males and females (6.6 mm and 7.4 mm, respectively). In addition, the mean values of buccal cavity depth and distance between the excretory pore and the anterior end of the nematode were also lower than those previously reported. On the other hand, sequence data of the mitochondrial (COI) and nuclear (rDNA) genes of M. capsulata were described, being the first time that molecular markers are reported for the genus Metathelazia and also for the entire family Pneumospiruridae. Based on data available from GenBank, these results indicate that M. capsulata sequences are closely related to the family Rhabdochonidae, which is assumed to belong to superfamily Thelazioidea, a superfamily including the family Pneumospiruridae, but also suggest the distant relations with the family Thelaziidae. This is the first time that M. capsulata is reported in red fox from Europe. This study provides valuable information for future phylogenetic studies on Metathelazia spp. nematodes and, in general, on species of the family Pneumospiruridae.
