Ten new county records and significant extensions of known geographic ranges are reported for 10 taxa of fishes within 6 families (Atherinopsidae, Catostomidae, Centrarchidae, Cyprinidae, Fundulidae, and Percidae) from five rivers in Arkansas. Records are presented for the shoal chub (Macrhybopsis hyostoma), highfin carpsucker (Carpiodes velifer), golden redhorse (Moxostoma erythrurum), pealip redhorse (Moxostoma pisolabrum), northern starhead topminnow (Fundulus dispar), Mississippi silverside (Menidia audens), dollar sunfish (Lepomis marginatus), crystal darter (Crystallaria asprella), mud darter (Etheostoma asprigene), and river darter (Percina shumardi).

Thirteen of 51 (25.5%) Jefferson salamanders, Ambystoma jeffersonianum, and 4 of 69 (5.8%) small-mouthed salamanders, Ambystoma texanum, from east-central Illinois were found to be infected with metacercariae of Clinostomum marginatum; 1 of 72 (1.4%) spotted salamanders, Ambystoma maculatum from north-central Arkansas was found to be infected with metacercariae of Clinostomum attenuatum. We provide a new host record for C. attenuatum and 2 new host records and a new locality record for metacercariae of C. marginatum. In addition, a list of the amphibian hosts of metacercariae of Clinostomum spp. is provided. © 2010 The Helminthological Society of Washington.

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.

The Bayou Bodcau crayfish, Bouchardina robisoni, is a rare endemic decapod that is considered critically imperiled (S1) in Arkansas by The Nature Conservancy. Few collections of this species have been made since 1977, with specimens previously known only from four counties of western and southwestern Arkansas. Herein, we provide two new distributional records in addition to documenting all known specimens and collection sites. We suggest updating the conservation status to threatened.

We report two new geographic distribution records for the Brook Stickleback (Culaea inconstans) in Nebraska. Both records are from Dawes County, the first from Dead Man's Creek and the other from Chadron Creek. These are the only records of C. inconstans from the WH1 sub-basin of the White River basin. This fish is apparently extending its range westward in the state. © 2010, American Midland Naturalist.

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.

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.

Twenty individual amphibians representing 9 species within 6 families and 44 individual reptiles representing 15 species within 8 families from the Ucayali Region, Peru, were examined for helminths. Seven (35%) of the amphibian species and 15 (34%) of the reptiles were found to harbor at least 1 species of helminth; 5 (25%) of the amphibians and 4 (9%) of the reptiles harbored multiple infections. A cyclophyllidean cestode and 14 taxa of nematodes within 7 families were found in the herpetofauna surveyed. Thirteen new host and 6 new geographic distribution records are documented. © 2010 American Society of Parasitologists.

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.
