One of two (50%) cave myotis, Myotis velifer, and one of five (20%) pallid bats, Antrozous pallidus, from Terrell Co., Texas, were infected with lecithodendrid trematodes, Acanthatrium alicatai Macy, 1940. A total of 22 specimens was collected from the small intestines of these two species of bats. This study documents two new host records and a new locality for this parasite. This also represents the second occurrence of the species since the original description >65 years ago. In addition, three nematodes (Seuratum cancellatum) and a coccidian (Eimeria antrozoi) were found in one (20%) of the A. pallidus. A summary of endoparasites of both species of bats is presented.
