Six of 14 wild white-tailed deer fawns (Odocoileus virginianus) were found infected with a species of Strongyloides, probably S. papillosus. All positive fawns were obtained from northern Florida during March through June 1973, and were 1-3 weeks of age when first examined. Egg counts ranged from <50 to 2,050 eggs per gram of feces. This is the first report of this potentially pathogenic parasite in free-ranging white-tailed deer fawns.
