Abstract

Forty-five individuals of Polypedates megacephalus were collected from northern Taiwan for dietary analysis. The helminths from 10 infected sampled specimens included representatives of 1 species of Acanthocephala, Pseudoacanthocephalus bufonis, and 2 species of Nematoda, Cosmocerca ornata and Oswaldocruzia hoepplii. Polypedates megacephalus is a new host record for both C. ornata and O. hoepplii.
