During 1992, 83 specimens of North American Amphibia from Algonquin Park and Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and from El Paso County, Texas USA, comprising 14 species in seven families, were checked for opalinids in the cloaca.Protoopalina allisteri n. sp. is described from oneGastrophryne carolinensis (Microhylidae) from Arkansas andP. mitotica was found in one of fourScaphiopus multiplicatus (Pelobatidae) from Texas.

Opalinidae in African Anura I. Genus Opalina
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in nine families were checked for opalinids in the cloaca, it is suggested that the Ranidae, the Phrynobatrachus and Ptychadena, the Hyperoliidae and the Rhacophoridae are among the major carriers of Opalina in the Afrotropical Region.

Opalinidae in African Anura. IV. Genus Protoopalina
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in nine families, were checked for opalines in the cloaca, it was suggested that the Bufonidae (genus Bufo) and the Ranidae (in particular the genera Cacosternum, Ptychadena, Rana and Strongylopus) are among the major carriers of Protoopalina in the Afrotropical Regional.

TLDR
Experimental infections of various anuran tadpoles of the genus Limnodynastes, Litoria and Xenopus show that the opalinid can only survive for a limited time in these unnatural hosts. Expand
