Abstract

Two hellbenders, Cryptobranchus alleganiensis (Urodela: Cryptobranchidae), from Missouri, U.S.A., were examined for helminths. Three nematode species, Falcaustra catesbeianae Walton, 1929, Urodelnema mackini (Walton, 1941), and Kamegainema cingula (Linstow, 1902) and 1 proteocephalid cestode species were found. This is the first record of Fa. catesbeianae from the hellbender. Kamegainema cingula, normally a dermal nematode of cryptobranchids, is reported for the first time infecting the body cavity.
