Abstract

Fifteen Gehyra dubia and 15 Gehyra punctata from Australia were examined for helminths. One species of Cestoda and 6 species of Nematoda were found. Gehyra dubia harbored Oochoristica australiensis, Maxvachonia chabaudi, and Skrjabinodon smythi. Gehyra punctata harbored Parapharyngodon fitzroyi, Pharyngodon kartana, Physalopteroides filicauda, and Abbreviata sp. (larva in cyst). Both species of Gehyra are parasitized by generalist helminths that also infect other species of lizards.All findings represent new host records.
