Abstract
Fourteen individuals of the leech Placobdella multilineata were found feeding on a Gulf Coast box turtle, Terrapene carolina major, collected in Gulfport, Mississippi, U.S.A., representing a new host and state geographic distribution record. This represents the first vouchered report of a leech from any North American box turtle.
