Abstract

One hundred forty-three banded frogs Rana camerani were collected from 2 localities in Turkey between 2000 and 2004 and examined for helminths. One species of Monogenea (Polystoma sp.), 5 species of Digenea (Gorgodera cynoides, Gorgoderina vitelliloba, Haplometra cylindricae, Opisthioglyphe rastellus, Pleurogenoides medians), 1 species of Cestoda (Nematotaenia dispar), 3 species of Nematoda (Cosmocerca ornata, Oswaldocruzia filiformis, Rhabdias bufonis), and 1 species of Acanthocephala (Acanthocephalus ranae) were found. Rana camerani represents a new host record for each of the collected parasite species.
