Abstract

The eyes from 103 hunter-killed white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), and 19 mule deer (O. hemionus) killed between 28 November to 14 December 1991 from Wain-wright, Alberta were examined for Thelazia spp. One immature male and two immature female Thelazia skrjabini were collected from beneath the third eyelid of one adult female O. virginianus. This is the first report of T. skrjabini in a member of the Cervidae.
