- n. Parenchymatous or acœlomatous worms; in Cuvier's classification, the second order of Entozoa, or intestinal worms, being those which have no intestines, but are solid or parenchymatous. They were divided into four families—Aeanthoccphala, “Tremadotea” [read Trematodea], Tænioidea, and Cestoidea; but neither the; composition of the order nor its subdivision corresponds with natural groups.
- n. Plural form of parenchyma.
