The digestive tracts of 29 Hemidactylus bowringii from Hong Kong, China were examined for helminths. One species of Cestoda, Oochoristica javaensis, two species of Nematoda, Parapharyngodon maplestoni and Spauligodon hemidactylus, and one species of Acanthocephala, Acanthocephalus bufonis, were found. These helminths are opportunistic generalists that infect other lizard species and each species represents a new helminth record for H. bowringii. Hong Kong, China is a new locality record for O. javaensis, P. maplestoni, and S. hemidactylus.
