Abstract

Wild populations of the sagebrush lizard (Sceloporus graciosus) are reported as paratenic hosts for third stage larvae of Ascarops sp. Larvae were found in stomach submucosal granulomas which averaged 350 μm in diameter and consisted of histiocytes and layers of fibrocytes. Prevalence of infection was 16% (27 of 170 infected); mean intensity was 3 (1 to 8 nematodes/host). Prevalence was significantly higher in male than female lizards.
