Abstract: The giant African land snail, Lissachatina fulica is considered to be one of the world's worst invader species. This snail can provoke major economic and public health problems in urban areas, in particular as a potential vector of nematodes that infect both humans and animals. In this context, the present study investigated the extent of the infestation of this exotic snail in the urban neighborhoods of the city of Rio Branco, verified the presence of endoparasites in these snails, and evaluated the knowledge… Show more

“…This is the first molecularly confirmed A. abstrusus infection in domestic cats from Brazil and the first report of cat aelurostrongylosis in Brazilian Amazonia. Thus, the enzooticity of A. abstrusus in Brazil is herein confirmed as previously suggested by past [ 32 ] and recent descriptions of gastropods ( L. fulica ) naturally harbouring larvae of A. abstrusus in the Amazonia [ 31 ]. The infection rate here detected appears low if compared for instance to the rates described in Europe, e.g., 6.6% in Germany [ 33 ], 10.3% in Italy [ 12 ], 8–13.2% in Greece [ 10 , 34 ], 14.5% in Hungary [ 35 ],17.4% in Portugal [ 36 ], but compatible with values published for the Americas, i.e., 2.1% in USA [ 37 ], 0.4% in Colombia [ 38 ].…”

“…Indeed, studies on elusive felids living in wild and remote areas are difficult, but further studies are truly encouraged. In this view, the successful recent use of molecular methods to obtain information on the occurrence of metastrongyloids in intermediate hosts of South America are very encouraging [ 3 , 31 ].…”

“…Nowadays A. fulica has been reported in the most diverse environments such as forests, capoeiras, caatingas, savannahs, plantations, vegetable gardens, decomposing materials and urban areas (Eston et al, 2006;Ohlweiler et al, 2010;Santos, Delabie, 2011;Onyshi et al, 2018). Recently, infestation has been reported in urban areas of the Brazilian Amazon, probably due to transport of the mollusks in accidental loads; this is a matter of concern for the dispersal capacity and lack of natural mollusk predators (Moreira et al, 2013;Lima and Guilherme, 2018). The soil plays a key role in the protection of A. fulica, since it is used as a food source and defense strategy .…”

“…Paraense (1967Paraense ( , 1981Paraense ( , 1983 recorded planorbids in the region for the first time, while Salvador et al (2020b) recorded Helicina chionea Pilsbry, 1949 in Brazil for the first time, as well as two new records of Helicina spp. Lima and Guilherme (2018) also recently reported the infestation of the urban zone of the state capital, Rio Branco, by the exotic land snail Lissachatina fulica (Bowdich, 1822). Given the paucity of data from that region, the present study aimed to compile an inventory of the terrestrial gastropods found in a forest reserve in eastern Acre, the Reserva Florestal Humaitá (Humaitá Forest Reserve, henceforth HFR).…”
