Abstract

Parasites were collected from 13 Cape mountain zebras (Equus zebra zebra) in the Mountain Zebra National Park, South Africa, during four seasons of 1983 and 1984. Eighteen nematode species belonging to the families Atractidae, Habronematidae, and Strongylidae, and one species of cestode were recovered. The most abundant nematodes were Cyathostomum tetracanthum, Cylicostephanus longiconus and Probstmayria vivipara. Only one of the 10 cyathostome nematodes recovered, C. longiconus was present in every zebra.
