Summary The qualitative and quantitative analyses of the digenean fauna of bats were conducted for the first time in Serbia. The sample comprised of 118 individuals of 12 bat species (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Myotis mystacinus, M. alcathoe, M. brandtii, M. oxygnathus, M. myotis, Hypsugo savii, Pipistrellus pipistrellus, P. nathusii, Plecotus auritus, P. austriacus and Nyctalus noctula) collected from 15 sites throughout Serbia. Six digenean species were identified: Lecithodendrium linstowi…

Bat parasites (Acari, Anoplura, Cestoda, Diptera, Hemiptera, Nematoda, Siphonaptera, Trematoda) in France (1762–2018): a literature review and contribution to a checklist
TLDR
This paper is a bibliographical survey of records of bat parasites in France between 1762 and 2018 and shows that bats are infected with a large diversity of endoparasites and ectopARasites.

Gastrointestinal helminths of pipistrelle bats (Pipistrellus pipistrellus/Pipistrellus pygmaeus) (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) of England
TLDR
It was shown that male bats exhibited a significantly more aggregated helminth distribution and lower abundance than females, and a revised phylogeny of bat-associated Lecithodendriidae, incorporating novel L. spathulatum and Prosthodendrium sp.
Composition and structure of helminth communities in two populations of Pipistrellus pipistrellus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Spain.
TLDR
Results indicate that the different characteristics of the P. pipistrellus foraging area in both localities are important in determining the composition and structure of helminth communities in this bat species.

TLDR
Many Lymnaea stagnalis L. collected from Cascade Lake, Orcas Island, Washington, were found to shed large numbers of a species of xiphidiocercaria containing refractile granules, proving that they were the larval stages of what appears to be an undescribed subspecies of Plagiorchis vespertilionis.
[Trematodes (Trematoda) of bats (Chiroptera) from the Middle Volga Region].
TLDR
The analysis of bat helminthes demonstrated that the fauna of trematodes of the northern bat, of the pond, and of the Brandt's bats is the most diverse, constituting more than 10 parasite species per bat species.
HELMINTHFAUNA OF BATS IN SPAIN. IV. PARASITES OF RHINOLOPHUS FERRUMEQUINUM (SCHREBER, 1774) (CHIROPTERA: RHINOLOPHIDAE)
TLDR
The helminthological analysis of 108 specimens of Rhinolophus ferrumequinum (Schreber, 1774) allowed us to find the following 13 parasitic species: Plagiorchis sp.

The analysis of bat helminthes demonstrated that the fauna of trematodes of the northern bat, of the pond, and of the Brandt's bats is the most diverse, constituting more than 10 parasite species per bat species.

TLDR
An analysis of the helminth fauna of the greater horseshoe bat was conducted for the first time on the territory of Serbia and the species S. glycirrhiza had the highest prevalence of infection and was represented by the highest number of individuals.

TLDR
Nineteen bats of the species Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, R. nattereri, Pipistrellus pipistrellUS, Barbastella barbastellus, Eptesicus serotinus and Plecotus auritus captured in N. W. Spain in 1983-85 were found to contain the following helminth parasites.

TLDR
Coleoptera was the most abundant prey found in fecal samples in all seasons and probably reflects the local foraging conditions for M. myotis.

TLDR
Evidence is given that arthropods frequently if not always serve as the second intermediate hosts of members of this family of trematode family members during an investigation of lecithodendriid life histories begun in 1955.
