A corrigendum on
Unexpected Variation in Neuroanatomy among Diverse Nematode Species

by Han, Z., Boas, S., and Schroeder, N. E. (2016). Front. Neuroanat. 9:162. doi: 10.3389/fnana.2015.00162

The complete number of ventral nerve cord (VNC) neurons for Ascaris suum should be given as 72 in the introduction and Table 1. The 55 VNC neurons listed in our publication refers only to the five repeating segments of 11 neurons as discussed in Stretton et al. (1978). An additional 17 neurons are found outside of these repeating segments within the A. suum VNC (see Stretton and Maule, 2013 for review).

This correction does not impact the results or the conclusions reached in our study.

We are thankful to Dr. Antony Stretton for noting the correct number of VNC neurons in A. suum.
