Odilia tasmaniensis n. sp.,O. praeputialis n. sp. andO. bainae Beveridge & Durette-Desset, 1992 from the small intestine of Australian murids are described and illustrated. The two new species are distinguished from the other eight species in the genus, namelyO. mackerrasae (Mawson, 1961),O. brachybursa (Mawson, 1961),O. emanuelae (Mawson, 1961),O. melomyos (Mawson, 1961),O. polyrhabdote (Mawson, 1961),O. uromyos (Mawson, 1961),O. mawsonae (Durette-Desset, 1969) andO. bainae Beveridge & Durette… Expand

Taxonomic revision of the Nippostrongylinae (Nematoda, Heligmonellidae) parasites of Muridae from the Australasian region. The genus Odilia Durette-Desset, 1973
The species of the genus Odilia Durette-Desset, 1973 (Heligmonellidae, Nippostrongylinae) are re-distributed among eight genera of which five are new. This classification is mainly based on certainExpand
The Gastrointestinal Helminths of Rattus giluwensis and Rattus novaeguineae (Rodentia: Muridae) with Descriptions of Two New Species (Nematoda) from Papua New Guinea
The suites of nematodes recovered were closer to that of the new endemic, Rattus leucopus, than those of the older endemic hydromyin murines that have been studied, and resembled that of any murid endemic to Papua New Guinea that has been studied thus far. Expand
Three New Species of Heligmonellidae (Nematoda: Trichostrongyloidea) from Melomys, Paramelomys, and Uromys (Rodentia: Muridae) from Papua, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea
Abstract During a study of the helminths of rodents (Muridae: Hydromyinae) from the island of New Guinea 3 undescribed species of trichostrongyloid nematodes were found. Macrostrongylus ingens n. sp.Expand
The parasite assemblages of Zyzomys argurus (Thomas, 1889) (Muridae : Murinae) from northern Australia
An analysis of the ecto- and endoparasite fauna of Zyzomys argurus from Queensland and the Northern Territory appears to indicate that, while intraspecific transmission of parasites is relatively common, host-switching from other species is not. Expand
Helminth community structure in Rattus leucopus (Gray) (Muridae) from Australia, Papua New Guinea and Papua
Determinants of the diversity of the helminth community in R. leucopus include the time intervals between the three waves of migration of Rattus spp. Expand
Asian Origins for Some Spirurid Nematode Parasites Found in Australian Mammals
The increasing knowledge of mammalian hosts, particularly rodents, and their nematode parasites from southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea and Australia is revealing increasingly complex patterns of relationships associated with the origin and direction of movement of hosts and the biogeographical, climatic and ecological conditions they and their parasites encounter.

Melomys cervinipes (Rodentia: Muridae)
Abstract: Melomys cervinipes (Gould, 1852) is a murid rodent commonly called the fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat. A small, russet brown rodent with light fawn-colored feet, it is 1 of 21 currentlyExpand


Trichostrogyles form rodents in Queensland, with comments on the genus Longistriata (Nematoda: Heligmosomatidae).
Trichostrongyles have been studied from 85 rats belonging to eight species, of which two were from south Queensland and the rest from north Queensland, near Innisfail, and another new genus, Heligmobaylisia, is proposed for the species Heligmonella jugatispicdum Sadovskaya. Expand
Trichostrongyloid nematodes and their vertebrate hosts: reconstruction of the phylogeny of a parasitic group.
This chapter introduces trichostrongyloid nematodes as a model for discussing the reconstruction of the phylogeny of a parasitic group and presents a phylogenetic tree of the TrichostRongyloidea. Expand
