Aplectana macintoshii (Stewart, 1914) Travassos, 1931, is reported for the first time from 2/8 (25%) western olive toads (Amietophrynus poweri) and 1/2 (50%) Tschudi's African bullfrogs (Pyxicephalus adspersus) from Namibia, southwest Africa. This cosmocercid nematode is widely ranging in amphibians and reptiles of 5 biogeographical realms, including the Afrotropical, Indomalayan, Neotropical, Oceanian, and Palearctic. A summary of all currently known hosts and geographic localities for A. macintoshii is included. © 2010 The Helminthological Society of Washington. Source

Fourteen amphibians (7 species) and 37 reptiles (25 species) collected from 3 sites in the Pastaza Province of the Republic of Ecuador were examined for helminths. A total of 6 (42.7%) individual amphibians and 18 (48.6%) individual reptiles were infected. Five (71.4%) of the amphibian species (4 frogs, 1 toad) and 10 (40.0%) of the reptile species (4 lizards, 6 snakes) were found to harbor 1 species of helminth; 1 amphibian species (14.3%) and 5 reptile species (13.2%) harbored 2 species of helminths each. One species of cestode and 16 species of nematodes, together representing 11 families, were found in the herpetofauna surveyed. Twenty-five new host and 15 new geographic records are documented. When compared to other South American countries, the majority of parasites reported herein for Ecuador have been reported previously in herpetofauna from Brazil. © 2010 The Helminthological Society of Washington.

Thirty-four amphibians (6 families, 12 species) and 28 reptiles (5 families, 16 species) from Paraguay were examined for helminths. Fifteen (44) amphibians and 6 (21) reptiles were found to harbor at least 1 species of helminth; 4 (12) amphibians and 2 (7) reptiles harbored multiple infections. Three species of Cestoidea and 17 species of Nematoda were found in the herptiles surveyed. Fourteen new host and 12 new locality records are documented, including the first report of the filaroid nematode, Macdonaldius grassi (Caballero, 1954) Chabaud and Frank, 1961, from South America. © American Society of Parasitologists 2010.

Twenty-four individual amphibians (4 families, 11 species) and 52 individual reptiles (9 families, 19 species) from the Rupunini District of southwestern Guyana were examined for helminths. Ten species of amphibians (91) and 13 (8 lizards, 5 snakes) species of reptiles (68) were found to harbor at least 1 species of helminth; 1 species of amphibian harbored a multiple infection of 2 helminths, and 2 harbored a multiple infection of 3 helminths. One species of reptile harbored a multiple infection of 2 helminths, 1 was infected with 3 species, and 1 harbored a multiple infection of 5 species. Three species of cestodes (1 linstowiid and 2 proteocephalids) and 20 species of nematodes representing 10 families were found in the herpetofauna surveyed. Twenty-five new host and 23 new geographic records are documented. © 2010 The Helminthological Society of Washington. Source

New distributional records are reported for millipeds of the orders Callipodida, Chordeumatida, Julida, Polydesmida, and Spirobolida. Two state records are documented for the julids, Brachyiulus lusitanus (Verhoeff) and B. pusillus (Leach) in Texas. In addition, we report 21 county records for other taxa, including the third record for Aliulus caddoensis Causey in Oklahoma. Source
