Abstract:

a quantitative research of parasitofauna of thirty-three anuran atelopus bomolochus peters 1973 collected from seco river (80° 9'22'' lw, 5° 5'19'' ls), close to locality of chulucanas, province of morropon, department of piura, peru, in october 2000, was conducted. 13 268 specimens of parasites and seven species in total during all the survey were collected. 28 hosts were parasited (84.8 %). 13 hosts (39.4 %) showed infection with 1 parasite species, six (18.2 %), eight (24.2 %) and one (3,0 %) had two, three and four parasites species, respectively. seven parasite species with the following prevalence of infections were found: gorgoderina parvicava travassos 1922 (digenea) (6.1 %), cylindrotaenia americana jewell 1916 (cestoda) (9.1 %), batracholandros spectatus (freitas & ibá?ez 1962) freitas & ibá?ez 1965 (nematoda) (33.3 %), aplectana hylambatis (baylis 1927) (nematoda) (6.1 %), rhabdias sphaerocephala goodey 1924 (nematoda) (69.7 %), capillaria sp. (nematoda) (39.4 %), centrorhynchus sp. (acantocephala) (3.0 %). b. spectatus was the dominant species (97.8 %). the effect of length with prevalence of infection of r. sphaerocephala, a core specie was found. b. spectatus and capillaria sp. are secondary species. g. parvicava, c. americana, a. hylambatis and centrorhynchus sp. are satellite species. the relationship of helminthes parasites with a. bomolochus is discussed
