  • 1 April 2007
TLDR
In a survey of 1,732 amphibians and reptiles collected across São Paulo Province, Brazil, and 7 provinces in Paraguay, 26 species were found infected with acanthocephalans, and a new species can be differentiated from all its congeners except A. caspanensis in having a sigmoid-shaped male posterior end.
Profilicollis novaezelandensis n. sp. (Polymorphidae) and two other acanthocephalan parasites from shore birds (Haematopodidae and Scolopacidae) in New Zealand, with records of two species in
TLDR
P. antarcticus and P. novaezelandensis are the first records of Profilicollis from New Zealand.

SummaryCorynosoma stanleyi n. sp. from Hydromys chrysogaster Geoffroy, 1804, in coastal Tasmania and Victoria, Australia, is described. It differs from other Corynosoma spp. chiefly in the size of
The Gastrointestinal Helminths of Lorentzimys nouhuysi (Rodentia: muridae) with Descriptions of Two New Genera and Three New Species (Nematoda) From Papua New Guinea
  • L. Smales
  • Biology
    The Journal of parasitology
  • 17 June 2010
TLDR
The helminth assemblage of L. nouhuysi did not resemble that of any other hydromyin rodent from the region studied thus far, and the species most closely resembles Odilia mallomyos Hasegawa and Syafruddin, 1994 but differs from this species in the detail of the synlophe ridges.
Plagiorhynchidae Meyer, 1931 (Acanthocephala) from Australasian birds and mammals, with descriptions of Plagiorhynchus (Plagiorhynchus) menurae (Johnston, 1912) and P. (P.) allisonae n. sp.
  • L. Smales
  • Biology
    Systematic Parasitology
  • 1 March 2002
TLDR
P. (P.) allisonae can be differentiated from its congeners by having a proboscis armature of 18-23 rows of 14-20 hooks, thorns of hooks shorter than simple roots with short manubria, eight tubular cement glands and eggs of 134-154 × 33-36 μm in size.
A redescription of Protospirura muricola Gedoelst, 1916 (Nematoda: Spiruridae), a parasite of murid rodents
TLDR
Species of P. muricola from African mammals re-examined in this study appear to have spread globally with synanthropic rat final hosts and possibly with the cosmopolitan dermapteran intermediate host Leucophaea maderae (Fabr.).
New species of Syphacia ( Syphacia ) Seurat (Nematoda : Oxyuridae) from Pseudomys species (Rodentia : Muridae) from central Australia
TLDR
Two new species are the first records of oxyurid nematodes from the genus Pseudomys, and from Australian arid-zone rodents, by having a suite of characters including an oval, dorsally and ventrally constricted cephalic plate, no cervical or lateral alae, and a protruding vulva.
Helminth assemblages of Uromys spp. (Muridae : Hydromyinae) from Australia, Papua New Guinea and Papua Indonesia and comparison with assemblages in Melomys spp.
TLDR
The differences found between the helminth assemblage from Papua New Guinea and Australia suggest that U. caudimaculatus may have travelled to Australia from New Guinea with a small pool of helminths species that was subsequently added to by host switching from sympatric rodent hosts, and may have lost many of the helmineths that travelled with it following arrival in Australia.
A discussion on the Heteracanthocephalidae Petrochenko, 1956 (Acanthocephala: Palaeacanthocephala)
TLDR
A review of the family Heteracanthocephalidae Petrochenko, 1956 was undertaken to assess the validity of its four genera and eight species, finding that there are currently four valid species of Aspersentis and one of Sachalinorhynchus.
