Abstract

Naturally-occurring streptocarosis, caused by Streptocara incognita Gibson, 1968, was diagnosed in two Chilean flamingos, Phoenicopterus chilensis. Ulcerative lesions of the proventriculus and gizzard caused by the nematodes resulted in a severe debilitative condition and eventual death. Streptocara incognita has been reported previously only in anseriform birds.
