The helminthological record of Rana cf. forreri in Acapulco municipality, Guerrero state, Mexico, consists of 19 taxa: 5 digeneans—Catadiscus rodriguezi, Haematoloechus coloradensis, metacercariae of Diplostomidae gen. sp., Mesostephanus sp., and Apharyngostrigea sp.; 2 cestodes—Cylindrotaenia americana and the plerocercoid of Diphyllobothriidae gen. sp.; 2 acanthocephalans—Neoechinorhynchus golvani and the cystacanth of Oncicola sp.; and 10 nematodes—Aplectana incerta, Cosmocerca podicipinus, Foleyellides striatus, Oswaldocruzia subauricularis, Rhabdias sp., and the larvae Contracaecum sp., Serpinema trispinosum, Gnathostoma sp., Physaloptera sp., and Globocephalus sp. Cosmocerca podicipinus and O. subauricularis were the most prevalent and abundant helminth species. The infection parameters for the remaining species ranged from 2.5% to 57.5% for the prevalence, and 1–18.7 for mean intensity.
