Abstract

During a survey of endohelminths from willets Catoptrophorus semipalmatus from the Texas Gulf coast, U.S.A., 22 species were found, including 1 acanthocephalan, 3 cestodes, 3 nematodes, and 15 trematodes. Two new species of cestodes, Kowalewskiella catoptrophori sp. n. and Kowalewskiella macrospina sp. n. (Dilepididae Railliet and Henry, 1909), are described. Willets represent new host records for 3 nematodes (Capillaria sp., Skrjabinoclava sp., and Skrjabinocara sp.) and 6 trematodes (Levinseniella hunteri, Lyperosomum sp., Probolocorpha glandulosa, Prosthogonimus ovatus, Renicola glandoloboides, and Stephanoprora sp.). A key to species of Kowalewskiella is included.
