"Porocephalus" in context

Porocephalus is a genus of nematodes that includes many species of soft-bodied roundworms. These worms are mainly found in freshwater, increasing in abundance and variety depending on environmental parameters. They have a small head and an oesophagus lined with spines, which give them some protection from predators. They range in size from about 0,2mm to 30mm, and most are brown or pink in colour, although some may be more brightly coloured. All members of the genus are ectoparasites, meaning they attach to their hosts in order to feed, usually on blood.
