Clinicopathologic observations on Coenurus
cerebralis in naturally infected sheep.
On morphological examination, cyst was identified as coenurus
Gid (Taenia multiceps) | The larvae of this worm invade the central nervous system, where they become known as Coenurus
A cenurose e uma doenca parasitaria cosmopolita e comum em ovinos (SHARMA & CHAUHAN, 2006) causada pela forma larval de Taenia (Multiceps) multiceps, denominada de Coenurus

A computer scans the weigh buckets totaling the fractional weights and selects the number of buckets with a total weight closest to the target input by the operator," explains Jim Coenurus

Gid (coenurosis) is caused by the larval stage of the canine tapeworm Taenia multiceps, which is called coenurus
