Abstract

Examination of 30 Virginia opossums (Didelphis virginiana) from south-central Connecticut revealed the presence of 7 species of gastrointestinal helminths: the nematodes Capillaria sp., Cruzia americana, and Physaloptera turgida; the trematodes Brachylaima virginiana, Brachylaima didelphis, and Didelphodiplostomum variabile; and the cestode Mesocestoides sp. All represent geographic distribution records for Connecticut.
