Abstract
Two infective larval forms of Tetrarynchoidea-cestode were vomited from a domestic cat in 1995. The worms were identified with the plerocercoid of Nybelinia surmenicola by their morphological features, especially the shape and numbers of hooks on the proboscis. This is the first case of Nybelinia-plerocercoid infection in a domestic cat in Japan.
