Abstract

One European glass lizard, Pseudopus apodus, and 3 European grass snakes, Natrix natrix, were examined for helminths. Pseudopus apodus harbored 1 species of Nematoda, Entomelas entomelas; N. natrix harbored 1 species of Digenea, Telorchis assula, 1 species of Cestoda, Ophiotaenia europaea, and 1 species of Nematoda, Rhabdias fuscovenosa. Iran is a new locality record for T. assula, E. entomelas, and R. fuscovenosa. This is the first report of helminths for P. apodus from Iran.
