Abstract

Fifteen Lyciasalamandra antalyana and 25 Lyciasalamandra luschani specimens from Antalya Province, Turkey, were examined for helminths. Three species of nematodes, Angiostoma aspersae, Aplectana acuminata, and Cosmocerca longicauda, were found in L. antalyana, and 1 species, A. aspersae, was found in L. luschani. Lyciasalamandra antalyana represents a new host record for each of the 3 species of nematodes; L. luschani had previously been identified as a host for A. aspersae and C. longicauda.
