Abstract

Three of 5 (60%) Mexican Plateau sliders, Trachemys gaigeae, from Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, Socorro County, New Mexico, U.S.A., were found to be infected with the acanthocephalan, Neoechinorhynchus emyditoides Fisher, 1960. This is the first report of N. emyditoides from T. gaigeae and New Mexico, U.S.A., and only the third article reporting parasites from this host.
