Abstract Holdsworth P.A. 1988. Scanning electron microscopy of Onchocerca sweetae. International Journal for Parasitology 18: 561-563. Scanning electron microscopy of adult Onchocerca sweetae highlighted the distinctive cuticular ridges of the midbody region of female worms, the cuticular annulations of males and females, and the crescent-shaped and prominent anus on the ventral surface of female worms. Study of male specimens revealed uniform annulations of the worm body, caudal papillae and spicules. The cephalic regions of male and female specimens revealed features of little value for differentiation from other nodule-inducing species of Onchocerca.
