Helminths associated with Norops fuscoauratus (Squamata, Dactyloidae) in highland marshes of the Brazilian semi-arid

Abstract: Helminthological studies may contribute with valuable information on host biology and conservation. Herein, we provide new data on helminths infecting the lizard Norops fuscoauratus, testing one of the factors considered most important in parasitic ecology: host size. We analysed 25 specimens of N. fuscoauratus from three highland marshes in the Brazilian semi-arid. Eight taxa of helminths belonging to Nematoda, Trematoda and Acanthocephala were found. Physaloptera sp. showed the higher prevalence (40%), with … Show more

“…Norops fuscoauratus is appointed for second time intermediate host of Acanthocephala in Cystacanth phase (Santos Mesquita et al, 2020). In this study, these parasites were found in the body cavity and gastrointestinal organs and confirm the relationship between the site of infection in the host and the way of transmission of endoparasites.…”

“…(D= 1) and Strongyluris oscari (D= 1). Already in anoles of Murici (AL), we obtained Brito et al (2014a, b), Araújo-Filho et al (2014) for the populations from the semi-arid; Cabral et al (2018), Amorim andÁvila (2019) andSantos Mesquita et al (2020) for humid forest ("Brejos-de-altitude") and Almeida-Gomes et al (2012), Barreto-Lima et al (2012) and Teixeira et al (2020) for lizards from the Atlantic Forest. In addition to these contributions, the descriptive study by Albuquerque et al (2012) should be highlighted.…”
