Nematode parasites of Chelidae (Testudines) from Southern Brazil
This is the first report of nematodes (Spiroxys contortus and Camallanus sp.) in A. spixii and the first record of Spiroxy contortu and Cam allanus sp. Expand
The helminth fauna of the red-crested cardinal (Paroaria coronata) Passeriformes: Emberizidae in Brazil
This work extends the area of occurrence of Orthoskrjabinia sp. Expand
Rhinonyssus sphenisci (Acari: Rhinonyssidae) in Magellanic Penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus)
The aim of this study was to verify the presence of nasal mites in the Magellanic Penguin, and to study their parasitological indices, and reported infection levels of R. sphenisci in S. magellanicus. Expand
Intestinal digeneans of freshwater turtles Phrynops hilarii and Acanthochelys spiXII (Testudines: Chelidae) from southern Brazil
The work was aimed to increase knowledge on the diversity of parasitic digeneans in freshwater turtles from southern Brazil and reported the first report of Cheloniodiplostomum testudinis, and Telorchis birabeni in P. hilarii. Expand
Helminths Parasitizing Columbina picui (Columbiformes: Columbidae) in Brazil
Abstract Columbina picui (picui ground-dove) is a small, diurnal columbid bird that lives, in couples or flocks, in open areas in the countryside and urban centers. The species occurs in Brazil andExpand
Infection Rates of Orthohalarachne attenuata and Orthohalarachne diminuata (Acari: Halarachnidae) in Arctocephalus australis (Zimmermann, 1783) (Pinipedia: Otariidae)
No significant differences for Halarachnidae prevalence were found between male and female hosts, and further studies should be conducted to better understand host–parasite relationships and possible pathogeneses caused by these infections. Expand
Lontra longicaudis infected with canine parvovirus and parasitized by Dioctophyma renale
This study describes a case of parvovirus infection in a river otter (Lontra longicaudis) assisted at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and Wildlife Screening Center, Federal University of PelotasExpand
The role of freshwater fish in the life cycle of Dioctophyme renale in Southern Brazil.
Third-stage larvae infections in fish in southern Brazil indicate the presence of parasitosis in the region; however, the contribution of this fish species as a source of infection for dogs in urban areas must be considered with caution given the difficulties these dogs may face in the capture and predation of the fish to the point of effectively maintaining the urban cycle of D. renale.

Occurrence of Dioctophyme renale larvae (Goeze, 1782) (Nematoda: Enoplida) in a new host from southern Brazil.
This study reveals a new host for D. renale larvae in snakes from southern of Brazil, where two third-stage larvae were found in the coelomic cavity of P. patagoniensis. Expand
Third-stage larvae of the enoplid nematode Dioctophyme renale (Goeze, 1782) in the freshwater turtle Trachemys dorbigni from southern Brazil – CORRIGENDUM
This is the first report of third-stage D. renale larvae in the freshwater turtle, T. dorbigni, which is normally found in wild carnivores and domestic dogs, with aquatic oligochaetes acting as intermediate hosts. Expand
