Between September 1991 and June 1992, feces from 4 species of tree skinks, Prasinohaema spp. from Papua New Guinea, were collected and examined for coccidia. Two species, P. flavipes and P. prehensicauda were found to harbor eimerians which are described as new. Oocysts of Eimeria krausi sp. nov. from P. flavipes were ellipsoidal to subspheroidal with a smooth bilayered wall and measured (L × W) 19.2 × 16.9 μm, with a length/width (L/W) ratio of 1.1. Micropyle and oocyst residuum were absent…

TLDR
A new species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 from rainbow skinks, Carlia ailanpalai Zug and Carliaeothen Zug is described from specimens collected in Papua New Guinea, which is apparently endemic to the skink genus Carlia (Gray).
Gastrointestinal Helminths of Two Species of Skinks: Emoia veracunda and Prasinohaema flavipes (Squamata: Scincidae) from Papua New Guinea
TLDR
Emoia veracunda and P. flavipes are infected by generalist helminths that have been found in other lizards from Papua New Guinea, and seven new host records are reported.

TLDR
To the knowledge, these represent the only coccidians ever described from P. stanleyanus and are described here as new.

TLDR
The number of named eimerian species in the Marmotini is reduced from 40 to 26 valid species; the names of those species that were most similar are synonymised and the species for which the original descriptions were inadequate are considered to be species inquirendae.

TLDR
