Abstract

Three new host records and a new locality record are reported for helminth parasites of Rafinesque's big-eared bat, Corynorhinus rafinesquii, from Little River County, Arkansas, U.S.A. Nine of 10 (90%) of the bats harbored 1 or more of 3 parasites, including 1 (10%) with an immature Vampirolepis sp., 1 (10%) with a third-stage larva of Physaloptera sp., and 9 (90%) with female or ova of Capillaria palmata. All represent new host records for these helminths. Capillaria palmata is reported from Arkansas for the first time.
