Abstract The life history of A. mackerrasae was found to differ from that of A. cantonensis as follows: (1) the moulting times of A. cantonensis in the definitive host occurred a few days earlier than those of A. mackerrasae; (2) the growth rate of A. cantonensis was more rapid than that of A. mackerrasae. However, there were no differences in the migratory pattern of the third-stage larvae of both species in experimentally-infected definitive hosts. It is concluded that Mackerras & Sandars (1955) described the life history of A. mackerrasae and not A. cantonensis.
