Abstract

Six species of trematodes were recovered from 5 species of snakes from the state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. Renifer heterocoelium was found in Wagler's snake, Xenodon merremii, and the cat-eyed night snake, Leptodeira annulata. Opisthogonimus fonsecai, and Opisthogonimus fariai were obtained, respectively, from X. merremii and the common water snake, Liophis miliaris. Ophiodiplostomum spectabile was also found in Li. miliaris. Styphlodora gili was found in the two-headed sipo, Chironius bicarinatus and Travtrema stenocotyle was found in the Brazilian lancehead, Bothrops moojeni. New localities are reported and Le. annulata and C. bicarinatus are, respectively, new hosts for R. heterocoelium and S. gili.
