Abstract

A variety of amphibian (2 salamanders, 4 frogs, and 2 toads) and reptilian (3 turtles, 2 lizards, and 5 snakes) species and subspecies from 11 counties of Arkansas and 6 counties of Texas were collected during several months between 1968 and 2004 and examined for endoparasites. Twenty previously described parasite species were found, including 2 myxozoans, 7 trematodes, 1 cestode, and 10 nematodes. We document 18 new host and 18 new geographic distribution records for these select parasites.
