Maseria vespertilionis n. g., n. sp. (Dorylaimina : Muspiceidae) is described from nearctic bats (Vespertilionidae). In addition to the type host, Eptesicus fuscus (P. de Beauvois), in Oregon, M. vespertilionis was recorded from Myotis volans (Allen) in Oregon, and from M. lucifugus (Le Conte) in Oregon and Alaska. The nematode was found only in subcutaneous tissues near the plantar surface of the rear feet of the host. The genus Maseria is distinguished from other genera in Muspiceidae by… 
Description of Riouxgolvania kapapkamui Sp. N. (Nematoda: Muspiceoidea: Muspiceidae), A Peculiar Intradermal Parasite of Bats in Hokkaido, Japan
Nucleotide sequences of the analyzed partial SSU rDNA-ITS1 region and partial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 of mtDNA showed greater similarity to chromadoreans rather than to enopleans, which is the first report of muspiceoid nematodes from Asia.
Haycocknema perplexum n. g., n. sp. (Nematoda: Robertdollfusidae): an intramyofibre parasite in man
Haycocknema perplexum n. g., n. sp. (Nematoda: Robertdollfusidae) is described from a man in Tasmania, Australia. Adult male and female nematodes and larvae were recovered from myofibres following
Outbreak of Skin Nodules Associated with Riouxgolvania beveridgei (Nematoda: Muspiceida) in the Southern Bentwing Bat (Miniopterus schreibersii bassanii), South Australia
An outbreak of white nodular cutaneous lesions was detected in one of only two known breeding colonies of the critically endangered southern bentwing bat (Miniopterus schreibersii bassanii) at Naracoorte, South Australia in 2009, with prevalence among males three times greater than among females.
Ectoparasites are unlikely to be a primary cause of population declines of bent-winged bats in south-eastern Australia
Prevalence of tick and R. beveridgei infections were greater in Victorian southern bent-winged bats than South Australian southern Bent-Winged bats and eastern bent- winged bats, possibly indicative of some type of chronic stress impacting the immune system of this subspecies.
A list of old and recently erected genus-group names not included in the ‘CIH Keys’ to nematode parasites of vertebrates and invertebrates
The various taxa are arranged, as far as possible, alphabetically according to the calssification used in the ‘CIH Keys’.
Health survey of two subspecies of bent-winged bats: southern bent-winged bat (Miniopterus orianae bassanii) and eastern bent-winged bat (Miniopterus orianae oceanensis)
This project compared the health status of both bent-winged bat subspecies to investigate the role that disease may have on the southern bentwingsed bat population decline, and found that southern bentwinged bats may require more energy to fly and forage than eastern bent-Winged bats.
