Abstract

Eleven of 113 (10%) lizards representing 6 of the 17 species (Anolis fuscoauratus, Anolis trachyderma, Plica umbra, Kentropyx pelviceps, Arthrosaura reticulata, and Mabuya nigropunctata) collected in the lower Moa River forest, in the Amazon rainforest in the Brazilian state of Acre, were infected with helminths in the gastrointestinal tracts. The nematodes recovered from lizards were Physaloptera lutzi, Physaloptera retusa, and Physalopteroides venancioi. Three new host records and two new locality records are reported.
