Abstract

Fifty-four Rana holtzi and 84 Rana macrocnemis from Turkey were examined for helminths. Rana holtzi harbored 3 species of Digenea (Gorgoderina vitelliloba, Haplometra cylindracea, Opisthioglyphe rastellus) and 1 species of Nematoda (Cosmocerca ornata). Rana holtzi is a new host record for these helminths. Rana macrocnemis harbored 1 species of Monogenea (Polystoma macrocnemis), 5 species of Digenea (Opisthioglyphe rastellus, Gorgoderina vitelliloba, Haplometra cylindracea, Pleurogenes claviger, Pleurogenoides medians), 3 species of Nematoda (Rhabdias bufonis, Cosmocerca ornata, Oswaldocruzia filiformis), and 1 species of Acanthocephala (Acanthocephalus ranae). Rana macrocnemis represents a new host record for H. cylindracea, O. rastellus, and P. medians.
