Helminths of two lizard species, Lepidophyma flavimaculatum and L. reticulatum (Squamata: Xantusiidae), from Costa Rica
Stephen R. Goldberg,Charles R. Bursey
Phyllomedusa : Journal of Herpetology , 2011,
Abstract: We examined two species of xantusiid lizards, Lepidophyma flavimaculatum Duméril, 1851 and L. reticulatum Taylor, 1955 from Costa Rica for the presence of helminths.
Helminths of seven species of lacertid lizards from southern Africa
Stephen R. Goldberg,Charles R. Bursey
African Zoology , 2011,
Abstract: Two hundred and forty five lacertid lizards representing seven species (Heliobolus lugubris, Ichnotropis squamulosa, Meroles anchietae, M. cuneirostris, M. suborbitalis, Pedioplanis lineoocellata, P. namaquensis) from southern Africa were examined for helminths. Adults of one species of cestode, Oochoristica ubelakeri, and four species of nematodes, Maxvachonia dimorpha, Parapharyngodon rotundatus, Spauligodon smithi, Thubunaea fitzsimonsi and metacestodes of a cyclophyllid cestode, the nematodes, Abbreviata sp. and an undetermined ascarid species, and an acanthocephalan species (as cystacanths) were found. Mean helminth species richness for adult helminths was 2.4 ± 1.3 S.D. (range = 1–4 per host species).
Helminths from three species of African chameleons

African Zoology , 2011,
Abstract: Three species of African chameleons (Chamaeleo gracilis, C. jacksoni and C. johnstoni) were examined for helminths. Two species of Cestoda (Oochoristica truncata and tetrathyridia of Mesocestoides sp.)and four species of Nematoda (Oswaldocruzia chamaeleonis, Parapharyngodon kenyaensis, Raillietnema chamaeleo, and Strongyluris elegans
Helminths of four species of gekkonid lizards from southern Africa
Stephen R. Goldberg,Charles R. Bursey
African Zoology , 2011,
Abstract: One hundred and seven specimens of four species of gekkonid lizards from southern Africa,Chondrodactylus angulifer, Pachydactylus bibronii, Pachydactylus capensis and Ptenopus garrulus, were examined for helminths. One species of cestode, Oochoristica ubelakeri, an undetermined cyclophyllid metacestode, six species of nematodes, Maxvachonia dimorpha, Parapharyngodon rotundatus, Skrjabinelazia ornata, S. petersi, Spauligodon smithi, Thubunaea fitzsimonsi, an undetermined ascarid larva, and an undetermined cystacanth were found. Seven new host records are reported. Mean helminth species richness for the four gekkonid species was 3.0 ± 0.8 S.D., range = 2–4.
New Family, New Genus, New Species of Acanthocephala (Echinorhynchida) from the Lizard, Sphenomorphus granulatus (Sauria: Scincidae), from Papua New Guinea

The Open Parasitology Journal , 2007, DOI: 10.2174/1874421400701010007]
Abstract: Sauracanthorhynchus sphenomorphicola n. gen., n. sp. from the intestines of the skink Sphenomorphus granulatus (Scincidae) from Papua New Guinea is described and illustrated. Sauracanthorhynchus sphenomorphicola is characterized by a subterminal, spheroid proboscis supporting 25 hooks arranged in 10 alternating longitudinal rows of 2 and 3; apical hooks slightly shorter than medial and posterior hooks. The trunk is commaform with an anterior expansion; 2 contiguous ovoid testes are located in the anterior third of the trunk. Sauracanthorhynchus sphenomorphicola is sufficiently different from other species assigned to the Echinorhynchida that a new family, Sauracanthorhynchidae is erected for it.

Influences of agricultural land use on Clinostomum attenuatum Metacercariae prevalence in Southern Great Plains amphibians, USA

Herpetological Conservation and Biology , 2007,
Abstract: Agricultural land use surrounding wetlands can influence various aspects of amphibian ecology. Amphibians inthe Southern Great Plains of North America exhibit altered demographics and body size in playa wetlands with cultivatedwatersheds compared to those in grassland watersheds. We identified metacercariae of the trematode Clinostomumattenuatum in dominant playa amphibians and therefore examined its prevalence between postmetamorphic individualsinhabiting wetlands in grassland and cultivated landscapes. During 1999 and 2000, 5,621 Bufo cognatus, 9,565 Ambystomatigrinum mavortium, and 49,373 Spea multiplicata captured at playa wetlands were examined for C. attenuatum metacercariae.In general, metacercariae prevalence in amphibians was 2-11 times greater in grassland than in cropland wetlands.Metacercariae prevalence also was 2-13 times greater in 1999 than 2000. Land-use differences may be related to shortenedhydroperiods in disturbed cropland wetlands, which may interrupt the life cycle of C. attenuatum. Yearly differences also maybe related to hydroperiod; annual rainfall was two times greater in 1999 than 2000. Our results suggest that agricultural landuse may influence metacercariae prevalence in amphibians on the Southern Great Plains, possibly through indirect effects onwetland hydroperiod.

Comparative Parasitology , 2012, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1654/4537.1
Abstract: Twenty-two Laudakia caucasia (Agamidae) from Iran were examined for helminths and found to harbor 3 species of Nematoda: Skrjabinodon pigmentatus, Spauligodon lacertae, and Thelandros baylisi. Laudakia caucasia represents a new host record for Sk. pigmentatus and Sp. lacertae; Iran is a new locality record for all 3 nematode species. Thelandros baylisi had the highest prevalence of infection (91%) followed by Sk. pigmentatus (45%) and Sp. lacertae (36%).

Abstract: Eighteen lesser mouse-eared bats, Myotis blythii (Tomes 1857) (Vespertilionidae) from Zanjan Province, Iran, were examined for parasites and found to harbor one species of Cestoda, Hymenolepis rhinopomae; one species of Nematoda, Molinostrongylus alatus; one species of Diptera, Penicillidia dufourdi; and one species of mite, Spinturnix andegavinus. Myotis blythii represents a new host record for Hymenolepis rhinopomae, and Iran is a new locality record for Molinostrongylus alatus.
