Abstract: In Northern India, the buffalo is the principal intermediate host for the larval multiplication of Echinococcus granulosus, and mainly the buffalo/dog cycle is operative for the perpetuation of the parasite’s life cycle. The development of protoscoleces from buffalo liver and lung cysts was compared in dogs. The segmentation and maturation rate of protoscoleces of liver origin was found to be retarded as compared to those of lung origin. It is emphasized that physiological, nutritional or metabolic differences may exist between parasite material from lung and liver. Possibly these differences are either habitat induced or due to strain variation
