Checklist of parasites associated with ʻreptiles’ in Northeast Brazil

Abstract: Reptiles, as well as other vertebrate groups, harbour a significant diversity of parasitic organisms, from nematodes and other helminths to viruses and bacteria. The Northeast is one of the richest regions in Brazil in terms of the reptile diversity, number of species and endemism. Parasites are diverse organisms and knowledge about the parasitic fauna of vertebrates is an important factor in understanding the ecological relationships between hosts and the environment. Studies on the parasitic fauna of reptile… Show more

“…Oswaldocruzia Travassos, 1917 (Nematoda: Molineidae) comprises about 90 nominal species of parasites from amphibians and reptiles distributed worldwide (Guerrero 2013; Svitin 2017; Willkens et al 2021). Currently, 43 species have been reported in the Neotropical region (Willkens et al 2021), in which 11 are widely distributed in Brazil, infecting several species of amphibians and lizards (see Lent and Freitas 1935; Freitas and Lent 1938; Ben Slimane and Durette-Desset 1995; Bursey and Goldberg 2004, 2011; Durette-Desset et al 2006; Ávila and Silva 2010; Campião et al 2014; Larrat et al 2018; Benício et al 2022; Lacerda et al 2023). Although species of Oswaldocruzia from Brazil frequently appear in studies of species inventory or parasite ecology, most taxonomic studies regarding morphological descriptions have been published before the last 20 years (Bursey and Goldberg 2004; Durette-Desset et al 2006; Santos et al 2008; Larrat et al .…”
