Abstract

Four species of Gonatodes, Gonatodes albogularis, Gonatodes antillensis, Gonatodes concinnatus, and Gonatodes humeralis, were examined for helminths. Found were 8 species of Nematoda: gravid specimens of Cosmocerca parva, Parapharyngodon scleratus, Physaloptera retusa, Skrjabinelazia galliardi, Spauligodon bonairensis, and Spauligodon oxkutzcabiensis and larvae of Physaloptera sp. and Acuariidae gen. sp. It appears that species of Gonatodes are parasitized by generalist helminths. A list for currently known helminths infecting species of Gonatodes and 4 new host records are provided.
