Sixty-two brown anoles, Anolis sagrei, from Oahu, Hawaii were examined for helminths. Anolis sagrei was introduced to Hawaii, presumably from the Caribbean. Two species of trematodes, Mesocoelium monas and Platynosomum fastosum, 3 species of nematodes, Atractis scelopori, Physaloptera squamatae, and Physocephalus sp., 1 acanthocephalan, Acanthocephalus bufonis, and 1 pentastome, Raillietiella frenatus, were found. Atractis scelopori and P. squamatae, previously unknown in Hawaii, are widely… 

Origin of the Helminth Community of an Exotic Invasive Lizard, the Brown Anole, Anolis sagrei (Squamata: Polychrotidae), in Southwestern Taiwan

Composition of the helminth community of the brown anole, Anolis sagrei, an exotic invasive species in Taiwan, was studied to identify the emigration point of this lizard, and Cyrtosomum penneri was found, supporting the contention that the Taiwan population of A. Sagrei originated from Florida.

Helminths of the exotic lizard Hemidactylus mabouia from a rock outcrop area in southeastern Brazil

TheHelminth assemblage of the H. mabouia population appears to have been entirely acquired by this exotic gecko from the local helminth species pool, rather than possessing any species from the parasite faunas of the original African populations.

Gastrointestinal helminths of seven gekkonid lizard species (Sauria: Gekkonidae) from Oceania

Helminths reported in this study are generalists and Twenty new host records are reported.

Helminth parasites of two sympatric lizards, Enyalius iheringii and E. perditus (Leiosauridae), from an Atlantic Rainforest area of southeastern Brazil

The helminth assemblages from both host species were depauperate and dominated by generalist helminths with direct life-cycles.

New Species of Falcaustra (Nematoda: Kathlaniidae) in Nyctimystes Cheesmani (Anura: Hylidae) From Papua New Guinea

Falcaustra batrachiensis represents the fifth Australo-Papuan species assigned to the genus and is distinguished from other Australo’s Papuan species by the distribution pattern of the caudal papillae.

Acquired and introduced macroparasites of the invasive Cuban treefrog, Osteopilus septentrionalis

Helminths from an Introduced Species (Tupinambis merianae), and Two Endemic Species (Trachylepis atlantica and Amphisbaena ridleyi) from Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, Brazil

The helminth fauna observed allowed us to conclude that helminths can be carried together with their host when they colonize new geographic localities and that these introduced helminTHs can, in turn, colonize endemic, or native, hosts.

Helminth and Arthropod Parasites of the Ground Skink, Scincella lateralis (Sauria: Scincidae), from Arkansas and Oklahoma, U.S.A

Ground skinks from Arkansas and Oklahoma were collected and examined for helminth and arthropod parasites, documenting new host records for O. eumecis and acuariid larvae, and new distributional records are reported for P. squamatae and O. pipiens.

Helminth parasites of the Mediterranean gecko, Hemidactylus turcicus (Sauria: Gekkonidae), from Texas, United States with a summary of helminths of this host

One hundred-thirty six Mediterranean geckos, Hemidactylus turcicus, were collected between December 1986 and March 2016 in Texas, USA, and examined for helminth parasites and a trematode, Mesocoelium meggitti, is reported from Texas for the first time.

Helminths of Ten Species of Geckos (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Papua New Guinea, with Comparisons between Immigrant and Endemic Geckos1

One species of Digenea, one species of Cestoda, 18 species of Nematoda, as well as three taxa of nematode larvae (in cysts) were found.



Helminth parasites of Jamaican anoles (Reptilia: Iguanidae): a comparison of the helminth fauna of 6 Anolis species

Helminth prevalence patterns and species composition reflected differences in anole habitats rather than ecomorphs, and were uncorrelated with the genetic relatedness of indigenous versus introduced anole species.

Acanthocephalus bufonis (Acanthocephala) from Bufo marinus (Bufonidae: Amphibia) in Hawaii.

There was a significant negative correlation between host length and intensity of infection with subadult toads having significantly higher infection levels than adult male and female toads.

Experimental life-cycle studies of Raillietiella gehyrae Bovien, 1927 and Raillietiella frenatus Ali, Riley and Self, 1981: pentastomid parasites of geckos utilizing insects as intermediate hosts

SUMMARY The life-cycles of two closely related cephalobaenid pentastomids, Raillietiella gehyrae and Raillietiella frenatus, which utilize geckos as definitive hosts and cockroaches as intermediate

A list is given of helminths found in dogs and cats from the Island of Oahu, Hawaii and observations on the distribution and life history of some of the parasites are made.

A redescription of Acanthocephalus bufonis (Shipley, 1903) Southwell and Macfie, 1925 (Acanthocephala: Echinorhynchidae) from the black-spotted toad, Bufo melanostictus, from Bogor, Indonesia

Acanthocephalus bufonis (Shipley, 1903) Southwell and Macfie, 1925 is redescribed on the basis of specimens collected from the black-spotted toad, Bufo melanostictus Schneider, 1799, from Indonesia.

Effects of pentastome infection on reproduction in a southern Texas population of the Mediterranean Gecko, Hemidactylus turcicus

It is estimated that oviductal egg production in this gecko population was reduced by 21% due to the pentastome infection, indicating that this macroparasitic infection should be considered as a possible factor in the population regulation of H. turcicus in southern Texas.

Pharyngodon lepidodactylus sp. n. (Nematoda: Pharyngodonidae) from the Mourning Gecko, Lepidodactylus lugubris (Lacertilia: Gekkonidae), from Hawaii

Sixty-three Pharyngodon lepidodactylus sp. n. were recovered from the large intestines of 26 of 283 adult Lepidodactylus lugubris collected from Hawaii. Prevalence of infection was 9% (mean intensity

Amphibians and Reptiles of the West Indies: Descriptions, Distributions, and Natural History

For herpetologists, biologists, ecologists, and biogeographers with an interest in the Antillean biota, "Amphibians and Reptiles" should be important source for future research.

Spauligodon hemidactylus n. sp. (Nematoda: Pharyngodonidae) from Hemidactylus frenatus (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Oceania.

Nine-hundred-nineteen Spauligodon hemidactylus n. sp. (Nematoda: Pharyngodonidae) were collected from the large intestines of 201 of 574 adult Hemidactylus frenatus from 11 Pacific locations.
