Forty-seven dark-sided salamanders (Eurycea longicauda melanopleura) were collected from 5 counties of northern Arkansas and examined for helminth parasites. Twenty-four (51%) were infected with 1 or more helminths, including 8 (17%) with Brachycoelium salamandrae, 8 (17%) with Bothriocephalus rarus, 3 (6%) with Omeia papillocauda, 5 (11%) with Oswaldocruzia euryceae, 1 (2%) with Desmognathinema nanthalaensis, 1 (2%) with Cosmocercoides variabilis, and 2 (4%) with Amphibiocapillaria tritonispunctati. Five (11%) were concurrently infected with various helminths. We document new host records for the digenean B. salamandrae and the nematodes A. tritonispunctati, D. nanthalaensis, and O. papillocauda.
