Abstract: A multivariate analysis of distance measurements (total length, posterior chord length, anterior chord length, blade length, basis length, guard length, total width and length of the perpendicular from the anterior chord to the lowest point of the curve of the blade) of the rostellar hooks of more than 18 taeniid species was carried out using an automated distance measuring method by personal computer. On the basis of discriminant analysis of 8 morphometric characters four other Taenia spp. are described. A considerable distance has been found among T. taeniaeformis, T. parenchymatosa and the T. brauni - T. serialis group, but the other species are also far from one another and may be classified into more than one genus within the subfamily Taeniinae.
