Abstract

The helminth fauna of 73 tree frogs, Hyla arborea, in the Antalya province of southwestern Turkey comprised 6 species: Polystoma skrjabini Buchvarov, 1984, Pleurogenoides medians (Olsson, 1876), Encyclometra colubrimurorum (Rudolphi, 1819) Dollfuss 1929 (metacercariae), Proteocephalus sp. Weinland, 1858 (Pleurocercoid stage), Cosmocerca commutata (Diesing, 1861), and Acanthocephalus ranae (Schrank, 1788). All parasites collected represent new host records for H. arborea in Turkey. This is the first report of the monogenetic trematode P. skrjabini from Turkey.
