Abstract

Fifty-four Caucasian parsley frogs, Pelodytes caucasicus, from Turkey were examined for helminths in 2005. Found were 1 species of Digenea, Gorgodera cygnoides; 5 species of Nematoda, Agfa tauricus, Aplectana brumpti, Cosmocerca ornata, Oswaldocruzia filiformis, and Rhabdias bufonis; and 1 species of Acanthocephala, Pseudoacanthocephala caucasicus. Pelodytes caucasicus represents a new host record for each of the parasite species; Agfa tauricus and Pseudoacanthocephala caucasicus are reported from Turkey for the first time.
