Abstract

New Jersey bullfrogs, Rana catesheiana, were found to be heavily infested with filarial worms of the genus Foleyella Seurat 1917. A technique was devised to rapidly screen amphibians for the infection. The results of a state-wide survey are presented and a possible life cycle is suggested. Preliminary transmission studies indicated the mosquito, Culex territans, to be a natural vector.
