Parafilaria bovicola

This filarial parasite of cattle causes subcutaneous lesions that resemble bruising. It also has been reported from water buffalo ( Bubalus bubalis ). The worm is whitish; adult females are 50-65 mm long, and males 30-35 mm. It is found in Asia (Philippines, Japan, Russia, Pakistan, India), Europe (Bulgaria, Romania, France, Sweden), and Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, Rwanda, Burundi, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe). A specimen was recovered in Canada from a bull imported from France, but P bovicola does not appear to have established itself on the American continents and has not been reported from Australia.
