  title={Helminth parasites of seven anuran species from northwestern Mexico},
  author={Stephen R. Goldberg and Charles R. Bursey},
  journal={Western North American Naturalist},
One hundred eighty-three specimens representing 7 anuran species were examined for helminth parasites: Bufo kelloggi, B. mazatlanensis, Leptodactylus melanonotus, Pachymedusa dacnicolor, Rana forreri, R. magnaocularis, Smilisca baudini . The following species were found: 8 species of Trematoda, Cephalogonimus americanus, Clinostomum attenuatum (larva), Glypthelmins poncedeleoni, G. quieta, Gorgoderina attenuata, Haematoloechus complexus, H. longiplexus , and Megalodiscus temperatus ; 2 species…

Helminth Parasites of the Leopard Frog Rana cf. forreri (Amphibia: Ranidae) in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico

Abstract The helminthological record of Rana cf. forreri in Acapulco municipality, Guerrero state, Mexico, consists of 19 taxa: 5 digeneans—Catadiscus rodriguezi, Haematoloechus coloradensis,

Gastrointestinal Helminths from Six Species of Frogs and Three Species of Lizards, Sympatric in Pará State, Brazil

Thirteen new host records and 2 new locality records are reported and only B. salamandrae occurred in both frogs and lizards.

Gastrointestinal Helminths of 14 Species of Lizards from Panama with Descriptions of Five New Species

Thirty-seven new host records and 13 new locality records are reported and 1 species of Acanthocephala (cystacanths) were found.

Helminths of Two Species of Frogs, Lithobates taylori and Lithobates vaillanti (Ranidae), From Costa Rica

Two species of ranid frogs from Costa Rica were examined for helminth parasites and five species of Digenea, Glypthelmins facioi, Gorgoderina megacetabularis, Haematoloechus meridionalis, Langeronia macrocirra, Loxogenes arcanum and Contracaecum sp.

Helminth Parasites of the Leopard Frog Lithobates sp. Colima (Amphibia: Ranidae) from Colima, Mexico

The semiaquatic habits of this species of frog and the availability of particular feeding resources appear to determine the helminth composition and infection levels; however, co-speciation events also play an important role structuring these helminths communities.

Gastrointestinal Helminths of Six Sympatric Species of Leptodactylus from Tocantins State, Brazil

A large number of new host records are reported and the mean number of helminth species infecting each frog species was 3.3 ± 2.1 SD, with a range of 1–7.1SD.

Helminth Parasites in Chaunus marinus and Cranopis valliceps (Anura: Bufonidae) from Lagunas Yalahau, Yucatan, Mexico

Nematodes, particularly A. iztocanensis, showed high prevalence, mean abundance, and mean intensity values for both species of amphibians, suggesting a preference by neotropical, rather than neartic areas.

Helminth parasites of Leptodactylus podicipinus (Anura: Leptodactylidae) from south-eastern Pantanal, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

Leptodactylus podicipinus was preferentially infected by direct life-cycle parasites and was reported as a new host record for seven helminth species.

Helminth community structure of the oven frog Leptodactylus latinasus (Anura, Leptodactylidae) from Corrientes, Argentina

All parasite helminth species showed an aggregated pattern of distribution and the most infected organs were kidneys, small intestine, large intestine and pharyngeal zone and the host body size was important in determining the parasites abundance of G. repandum.




F. lowei is the 14th Nearctic species to be described and belongs to that group of species possessing a pseudosucker, namely F. catesbeianae, F. chelydrae, and F. wardi, and can be readily differentiated from these by the arrangement of caudal papillae and length of spicules.

Helminths of two sympatric toad species, Bufo marinus (Linnaeus) and Bufo marmoreus Wiegmann, 1833 (Anura: Bufonidae) from Chamela, Jalisco, Mexico.

Bufo marmoreus is a new host record for each of these helminths and Jalisco a new locality record for R. fuelleborni and Physaloptera sp.

A taxonomic revision of the Nematotaeniidae Lühe, 1910 (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea)

A taxonomic revision of the Nematotaeniidae, involving the examination of over 400 specimens, was undertaken. Some new taxonomic characters have been introduced to allow distinction of the various

First record of Pachysentis canicola (Acanthocephala:Oligacanthorhynchida) and the occurrence of Mesocestoides sp. tetrathyridia (Cestoidea:Cyclophyllidea) in the western diamondback rattlesnake, Crotalus atrox (Serpentes:Viperidae).

The western diamondback rattlesnake is also listed as a new host for tetrathyridia of the cyclophyllidean cestode (Mesocestoides sp.) and for the cystacanths of the oligacanthoryhynchid acanthocephalan (P. canicola).

Glypthelmins poncedeleoni N. Sp. (Trematoda: Macroderoididae) of Amphibians from the Neotropical Region of México

A new species of Glypthelmins (Trematoda: Macroderoididae) is described from the intestine of Bufo marinus and Leptodactylus melanonotus from several localities of the Neotropical Region of México.

The Nematode Parasites of Vertebrates

Y Yorke and Maplestone's book is actually a boiled-down library and museum combined, and makes possible an enormous amount of work in the far corners of the World which otherwise could not have been attempted, and will be the means of saving countless hours of tedious work for every investigator who interests himself in any phase of the study of nematodes which Evolves determination of genera.

Studies on the life history and development of Macracanthorhynchus ingens Meyer, 1933, with a redescription of the adult worm.

This worm was first described by von Linstow (1879) as Echinorhynchus ingens and Meyer (1933) removed it from Prosthenorchis and included it in the genus Macracanthorh Cynchus on the basis of the large size of the body and the nature of the outer shell of the egg.

Clinostomum attenuatum (Digenea) from the eye of Bufo marinus.

Two specimens of the cane toad, Bufo marinus, were found with single worm infestations of the eye, which is both a new host record and a new site of development for this amphibian parasite.

Digenean fauna of amphibians from central Mexico: nearctic and neotropical influences.

Twenty-two new host and 21 new locality reports are added to the database of amphibian species from central Mexico, finding 21 digenean species; 4 of them are recorded for the first time in Mexico.
