During necropsy of a Burton's snake lizard (Lialis burtonis Gray 1835) that was imported from Australia in January 1994, juvenile acanthocephalans were recovered from the mesentery and small bowel serosa which were identified as Porrorchis hylae (Johnston, 1914). This find represents a new paratenic host record for the species, and is recorded in a reptile native to Australia for the first time.
