Abstract

Camallanus philippinensis n. sp. (Spirurida; Camallanidae) from the intestines of Occidozyga laevis (Günther, 1858) (Anura; Dicroglossidae) is described and illustrated. Camallanus philippinensis n. sp. represents the 106th species assigned to the genus and the first from Philippine anurans. It is distinguished from other Oriental species by the pattern of caudal papillae (6 precloacal, 4 adcloacal, 8 postcloacal), length of spicule (323–329 µm), and postequatorial vulva. Occidozyga laevis is also found to harbor cyclophyllidean cysticerci. Occidozyga laevis represents a new host record for both of these helminths.
