Description of Gallegostrongylus ibicensis n. gen., n. sp., a Metastrongyle parasitizing the lungs of Mus musculus Linnaeus, 1758 (Rodentia: Muridae) in Ibiza (Balearic Islands). Gallegostrongylus n. gen. is proposed to include in the Angiostrongylinae the parasites of the lungs of Rodents, with bursal rays of reduced or middle size, dorsal ray consisting of two branches completely separated and located wide apart from each other, and spicules imbricated, arched and winged.
