Abstract

Examination of antennal glands of 11 specimens of Procambarus zonangulus, from a single locality in Texas and those of 4 specimens of Procambarus blandingii, from a single locality in South Carolina, indicated infections with adult Alloglossidium spp. Prevalence of Alloglossidium caridicolum in P. zonangulus was 18.2%, and that of Alloglossidium dolandi in P. blandingii was 100%. Both collections represented new hosts and distribution records for both digene species.
