Abstract

Nine specimens of Schneider's skink, Novoeumeces schneideri (Linstow, 1897) Baylis, 1923 were collected during April 2005 from Marsa Matrouh Governorate, Egypt, and examined for helminths. More than 100 individuals of the oxyurid nematode, Pharyngodon mamillatus, were recovered from the rectum of all 9 (100%) hosts (intensity = 5 to 15). Additional morphological information of the excretory pore, vulva, eggs, and lips were revealed using scanning electron microscopy.
