Abstract:

Five species of dicroglossid frogs (Dicroglossidae) (n = 29) from Southeast Asia were examined for helminths: Limnonectes blythii, L. hascheanus, L. khasianus, L. kohchangae, and L. macrognathus. We found eight species of Nematoda, consisting of gravid individuals of Aplectana macintoshii, Cosmocerca ornata, Foleyellides malayensis, Icosiella innominata, Oswaldocruzia rohdei, Seuratascaris numidica, and larvae of Abbreviata sp. and Physalopteridae gen. sp. Dicroglossid frogs from Southeast Asia are infected by generalist helminths that infect other species of frogs. Twelve new host records are reported.
