Abstract

Helminths of 3 species of anoles, Anolis humilis, Anolis limifrons, and Anolis lionotus, from Nicaragua were identified. Twelve new host records and 5 new locality records are reported. It appears that anoles are infected by generalist helminths whose hosts and geographic distributions are structured by ecological fitting rather than any coevolutionary dynamic.
