â¢Taenia omissa metacestode was firstly discovered from the alpaca, Vicugna pacos.â¢A brief morphological description of the T. omissa metacestodes recovered from alpacas was presented.â¢A molecular characterization of the T. omissa metacestodes was carried out using mitochondrial cox1 and nad1 genes.
Three metacestodes were collected from the mesentery and the surface of the liver of three adult alpacas (Vicugna pacos) in a slaughterhouse located in Puno, Peru. Various features of the metacestodes were observed for morphological identification. A molecular diagnosis was performed by PCR-based sequencing of mitochondrial genes of cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) and the NADH dehydrogenase subunit 1 (nad1). All metacestodes were identified as Taenia omissa by morphology and molecular methods The isolates from alpacas showed significant sequence similarity with previously reported isolates of T. omissa (95.7â98.1% in cox1 and 94.6â95.1% in nad1). Our report is the first to detect T. omissa metacestodes in alpacas and to reveal that alpacas are natural intermediate hosts for this parasite.
