Fifty-one Ozark zig-zag salamanders (Plethodon angusticlavius) were collected from 6 counties of northern Arkansas and examined for parasites. Eighteen (35%) were infected with 1 or more helminth or ectoparasite, including 6 (12%) with the cestode Cylindrotaenia americana, 1 (2%) with the capillarid nematode Amphibiocapillaria tritonispunctati, 12 (24%) with the oxyurid nematode Batracholandros magnavulvaris, and 1 (2%) with chiggers, Hannemania dunni. Three (6%) were multiply infected with C. americana and B. magnavulvaris or C. americana and H. dunni. We document new host records for C. americana, B. magnavulvaris, A. tritonispunctati, and H. dunni.
