Abstract

Three blackbuck antelope were examined for external and internal parasites. The latter were listed by location and number present. External parasite species found were as follows: Amblyomma americanum, larval Ixodidae and Tricholipeurus parallelus. Internal parasite species found were as follows: Taenia hydatigena (cysticercus), Camelostrongylus mentulatus, Haemonchus cortortus, Trichostrongylus axei, Trichostrongylus colubriformis, Trichostrongylus probolurus, Nematodirus spathiger, Oesophagostomum sp. and Trichuris sp. C. mentulatus and T. probolurus are two helminth species not indigenous to the United States which have survived translocation from India to parts of Texas.
