Abstract

A new record of Ophidascaris filaria from Python sebae constitutes the first report of the nematode from the Sudan and the fifth from the African rock python. The worms were found to have spicules much shorter than those reported in the accepted description of the species. A lesion associated with the worms comprised granulomatous and pre-neoplastic changes.
