Abstract

Six species of African anurans, Amietophrynus garmani, Amietophrynus gutturalis, Amietophrynus maculatus, Schismaderma carens (Bufonidae), Amietia angolensis, and Strongylopus grayii (Pyxicephalidae), were examined for helminths. Found were 1 species of Cestoda, Cylindrotaenia jaegerskioeldi, 7 species of Nematoda, Amphibiophilus natalensis, Aplectana chamaeleonis, Aplectana macintoshii, Cosmocerca ornata, Entomelas sylvestris, Rhabdias africanus, and Angiostoma sp. Twelve new host records and 1 new location record are reported. Twenty-five (21%) of the 117 South African anurans have now been reported to harbor helminths.
