Helminths of two lizards, Barisia imbricata and Gerrhonotus ophiurus (Sauria: Anguidae), from Mexico

The gastrointestina l tracts of 37 Barisia imbricata and 54 Gerrhonotus ophiurus Cope from Mexico were examined for helminths and, with the exception of R. brachyspiculatum, all these Helminths are generalists, which are widely distributed in other amphibian and reptiles hosts.
