Fejervarya cancrivorais often used as raw material for food and export commodities. In 2014, it was recorded that Karawang Regency was the largest producer of frog’s legs meat in West Java. Research on trematode worms ofF. cancrivorafrom Karawang Regency was conducted to find out the diversity of trematodes worms and its infection patterns. The observation was carried out on 120 frogs. The lungs, stomach, intestine, and caecum were examined for trematodes. The results showed that theF…

Anurans as Intermediate and Paratenic Hosts of Helminth Infections in the Rainforest and Derived Savanna Biotopes of Southern Nigeria
Anurans from the rainforest and derived savanna locations in Nigeria were investigated for their role either as intermediate or paratenic hosts of helminth infections, finding Afrixalus dorsalis is a new host record for the ascaridoid nematode while the finding of the strigeoid trematode, the proteocephalid cestode larvae and acanthOcephalan cystacanths in the anurans investigated represents new geographical records.
The prevalence of helminth parasites in Pelophylax nigromaculatus (Anura: Ranidae) from Shanghai, China
To investigate the infective status of helminth parasites in Pelophylax nigromaculatus from Shanghai, 90 frogs were collected from July 2013 to July 2014 and examined for the presence of internal parasites.
Seasonal occurrence of Cosmocerca podicipinus (Nematoda: Cosmocercidae) in Pseudopaludicola boliviana (Anura: Leiuperidae) from natural environments in Corrientes Province, Argentina and aspects of its population structure
The prevalence of infection was high during all the seasons (>80.0 %); the mean intensity decreased from summer to winter and then increased in spring, and the seasonal occurrence of C. podicipinus in P. boliviana did not show a marked seasonality.
Description and life cycle of Glypthelmins hyloreus sp.n. (Digenea : Plagiorchiidae).
During a survey of Oregon amphibia for trematode infections, a plagiorchiid species was found in the intestine of the Pacific tree frog, Hyla regilla Baird and Girard, and is designated as a new species, Glypthelmins hyloreus.
Taxonomic revision of species of Haematoloechus Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Plagiorchioidea), with molecular phylogenetic analysis and the description of three new species from Mexico.
The host records for species of Haematoloechus, together with the phylogenetic hypothesis of the genus, suggest that this host-parasite association predates the ranid diversification in the Cretaceous.
The evidence presented suggests an ancestral wide distribution of North American representatives of the Haematoloechus group, followed by successive contraction, amplification, and fragmentation of ranges and speciation events as a result of the intense volcanic activity in the central part of Mexico since the late Tertiary, the drying climate of western and central United States and northwestern Mexico from the early Eocene to the Pleistocene, and the glaciation during the Pleistsocene.
Echinostome infection in green frogs (Rana clamitans) is stage and age dependent
Histopathological analysis supported the hypothesis that echinostome-induced tadpole mortality resulted from compromised renal function, and suggested that the timing of highest cercarial shedding can coincide with the most vulnerable stages of green frog tadpole development, which could significantly impact green frog survival in nature.
Macroparasite Infections of Amphibians: What Can They Tell Us?
The need for broader investigation of this understudied group of amphibian macroparasites is emphasized, noting that ecological drivers affecting these parasites may also influence disease patterns in other aquatic fauna.
New cranial characters in the tribe Hydropsini (Serpentes: Dipsadidae: Xenodontinae)
It is found that the unpaired foramen on the parabasisphenoid with anterior position is the only skull feature shared by all Hydropsini genera, and small, paired parietal foramina are found in most of the dipsadids studied here, which are filled with a Sudan-Black-positive tissue of possible nervous origin.
