A quantitative study of the life cycle ofSkrjabingylus nasicola was made. Before estimating the losses at each level of the cycle, we needed to know the location of the infectious larval stage in the paratenic host. We found that a significant number of L3 encapsulate in the anterior part of the paratenic host. The cephalic glandular zones, salivary and lacrymal glands, and maybe the musculature and connective tissues ofApodemus sp. andClethrionomys glareolus are preferred waiting regions.Of… 
AGE-SPECIFIC PREVALENCE AND A POSSIBLE TRANSMISSION ROUTE FOR SKRJABINGYLOSIS IN NEW ZEALAND STOATS, MUSTELA ERMINEA
The prevalence of infestation of the skulls of stoats with the parasitic nematode Skrjabingylus nasicola was previously described in a national survey by King and Moody (1982). Since then, more
Age-specific prevalence and a possible transmission route for Skrjabingylosis in New Zealand stoats, Mustela erminea
TLDR
The hypothesis is advanced that the paratenic host for S .
Remarks on cranial lesions in the European polecat (Mustela putorius) caused by helminth parasites
TLDR
Further macroscopic, radiographic and scanning electron microscopy findings from the study of dried skulls and formalin-fixed heads of European polecats are presented, confirming the possibility of concurrent infestation of Mustela putorius with both parasite species.
PREVALENCE AND INTENSITY OF THE SINUS ROUNDWORM (SKRJABINGYLUS CHITWOODORUM) IN RABIES-NEGATIVE SKUNKS OF TEXAS, USA
TLDR
The prevalence of sinus roundworms in rabies-negative skunks suggested that behavioral changes because of skrjabingylosis might have been responsible for the submission by the public of some skunks for rabies testing.
Zur Helminthenfauna des Steinmarders (Martes foina Erxleben 1777)
TLDR
Two species of nematodes and two species of cestodes were found in the stomachs and intestines with the following extent of infection: Capillaria putorii was detected in 86.9% of the stone-martens, Molineus europaeus was found in 10.4% ofThe animals and no larvae of Tichinella spiralis were found.
Prevalence and Intensity of Nematode Parasites in Wisconsin Ermine
TLDR
It is thought that several distinct natural history components, namely, mating structure, diet, and metabolic rate, influence nematode parasitism in ermine.
Occurrence of the Sinus Nematode Skrjabingylus sp. (Nematoda: Metastrongyloidea) Inferred from Sinus Lesions in Arkansas Mustelidae and Mephitidae, with review of relevant literature
Nasal nematodes of the genus Skrjabingylus occur in the mammalian families Mustelidae and Mephitidae, and in North America occur from Canada to Costa Rica. Ingestion of infected snails, frogs,

Transmission of the parasitic nematode Skrjabingylus nasicola (Leuckart 1842) to species of Mustela (Mammalia)
TLDR
By feeding mustelids on wild-trapped Sorex araneus invasion from S. nasicola was effected in M. erminea and M. nivalis and direct invasion from mustelid tomustelid proved impossible.
The route of migration and pathogenesis of Skrjabingylus spp. (Nematoda: Metastrongyloidea) in mustelids.
TLDR
Most migrating worms associated with the central nervous system do not enter the neural parenchyma but are confined to the subarachnoid space where they provoke leptomeningitis and some haemorrhage, however, the worms sometimes enter the ventricles of the brain an...
The biology of the stoat (Mustela erminea) in the National Parks of New Zealand VI. Infestation with Skrjabingylus nasicola
TLDR
The natural distribution of the parasite Skrjabingylus nasicola was surveyed in 1492 stoats from New Zealand’s National Parks and distribution was expressed as frequency of occurrence of skulls containing nematodes in samples of stoats more than 6 months old.
Cranial helminth parasites in species of Mustelidae. I. Frequency and damage in fresh mustelids from Sweden.
TLDR
Fresh skulls of 55 Mustela nivalis L., 172 M. erminea L., 35 M. putorius L., 126 M. martes L. were investigated for parasitic helminths and the smallest proportion of lesions in comparison with the frequency and intensity of invasion was found in M.Putorius.
Seasonal and environmental conditions affecting the invasion of mustelids by larvae of the nematode Skrjabingylus nasicola
TLDR
Measurements in the field of temperatures and humidities indicated that autumn and spring are the most favourable seasons for larval survival in Mustela spp.
The biology of the stoat (Mustela erminea) in the National Parks of New Zealand II. Food habits
TLDR
In all seasons female stoats ate more mice and ground wetas, and males more opossum and ‘unidentified mammals’ (mostly opossums and rats) and grouping the prey as large, small, or medium showed that females ate more small prey.
