Abstract

The gastrointestinal helminths from 5 species of lizards from Baja California del Sur were examined: Bipes biporus (Bipedidae), Callisaurus draconoides, Uta stansburiana (Phrynosomatidae), Aspidoscelis hyperythrus, and Aspidoscelis maximus (Teiidae). The helminth community of lizards from Baja California del Sur is dominated primarily by generalist helminths that also parasitize lizard species in other localities. This may reflect the geological history of Baja California, which was formerly attached to the mainland of western Mexico. We report 6 new helminth host records and 2 new locality records.
