Abstract

Two hundred and two Baylisascaris procyonis were collected from 23 (70%) of 33 raccoons (Procyon lotor) at three localities in southern coastal Texas (USA). Abundances of B. procyonis were similar among collection localities. The presence of B. procyonis in Texas is confirmed, and this record considerably extends the potential range of baylisascariasis larval migrans in North America.
