Twenty-one adult rough green snakes Opheodrys aestivus (Ophidia: Colubridae) were collected during 2010 and 2012 from Montgomery (n = 1) and White (n = 20) counties, Arkansas, U.S.A., and examined for helminths. A single O. aestivus (5%) harbored a massive infection of Mesocestoides sp. This represents a new host record for Mesocestoides sp., and 1 of the rare instances that O. aestivus has been reported to harbor any parasite.
