A skin-infecting species of filaria parasitic in cattle and transmitted by the horn fly, haematobia irritans; the only species known to occur in the U.S.; characterised by a row of spines behind the mouth of the adult worm, which is 6 to 8 mm in the female, 2 to 3 mm in the male. Both adults and larvae are found in granulomatous skin lesions in cattle, usually on the underside of the abdomen.
