In September and October 1992, 97 Colombian amphibians collected at eight sites and comprising 25 species in eight families were checked for opalines in the cloaca. Zelleriella falcata Carini, 1933 was found in one Elachistocleis ovalis (Microhylidae); Z. microcarya Metcalf, 1923 in three of six Rana vaillanti (Ranidae); Z. stewarti n. sp. in four of seven Colostethus subpunctatus (Dendrobatidae); Z. dendrobatidis Metcalf, 1923 in one juvenile of C. palmatus; Z. antilliensis (Metcalf, 1914) in… Expand

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
