A description is given of the cutaneous lesions associated with Filaria taxideae Keppner, 1970 infections in badgers, Taxidea taxus (Schreber, 1778), from Wyoming. Female F. taxideae migrated into the dermis of the host and deposited their ova beneath the epidermis. Lesions developed gradually around the groups of ova, and no haemorrhagic lesions were observed on gross examination. First-stage larvae were observed at the periphery of developing and healed lesions along with embryonated ova. A comparison is made with the formation of the cutaneous lesions associated with the closely related Parafilaria Yorke and Maplestone, 1926.
