Abstract: SummaryWe analyzed the patterns of infection by helminths in populations of the Gymnophthalmidae lizard Dryadosaura nordestina from three Atlantic Forest fragments in Northeast Brazil. Prevalence and mean intensity of infection by location showed the following results: ARIE Mata de Goiamunduba (60.8 % and 10.4 ± 8), RPPN Engenho Gargaú (83.3 % and 20.8 ± 19.7) and Benjamim Maranhão Botanical Garden (70.4 % and 7.78 ± 5.8). We provide the first records of helminth infection for the lizard D. nordestina, in whic… Show more

“…Norops fuscoauratus (D'Orbigny in Duméril & Bibron, 1837), a small-bodied lizard of the family Dactyloidae, has a disjunct geographic distribution in the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest, with populations in highland marshes in the Brazilian state of Ceará (Avila-Pires, 1995; Loebmann & Haddad, 2010; Ribeiro-Junior, 2015). Biological aspects of N. fuscoauratus have been published, such as diet and microhabitat use (Vitt et al ., 2003, 2008), whereas parasitological studies are more scarce and restricted to Amazonian populations (Ávila & Silva, 2010, 2013). Herein, we present the parasitological descriptors of helminths associated with N. fuscoauratus from highland marshes of the Brazilian semi-arid, testing the influence of host body size on parasitism.…”

“…Heteroxenic species of the genus Physaloptera are reptiles Teixeira et al, 2017;Teixeira et al, 2018a) and amphibian parasites (Campião et al, 2014) in Brazil. The trematode H. odhneri has previously been recorded in snakes (Silva et al, 2005;Silva & Barrella, 2002), and recently in lizards (Teixeira et al, 2018b). In addition, Oligacanthorhynchus sp.…”

“…Coleodactylus meridionalis is a small lizard, and in the present study obeys the standards already described in the literature, with low parasite richness; this is commonly represented by the following lizards: Anotosaura vanzolinia Dixon, 1974 (Squamata: Gymnophthalmidae) with an average SVL of 36 mm; Liolaemus lutzae Mertens, 1938 (Squamata: Liolaemidae), 50 mm of SVL; Aspronema dorsivittatum (Cope, 1862) (Squamata: Scincidae) 64 mm of SVL; Phyllopezus lutzae (Loveridge, 1941) (Squamata: Phyllodactylidae) 42 mm of SVL and Dryadosaura nordestina Rodrigues, Xavier Freire, Machado Pellegrine and Sites, 2005 (Squamata: Gymnophthalmidae) 40 mm of SVL, which harbor up to three parasite species Oliveira et al, 2017;Rocha, 1995;Rocha et al, 2003;Teixeira et al, 2018b). This pattern may be explained by specific sites of infection only being available within larger hosts due to potential greater niche heterogeneity, which thus facilitates segregation of microhabitats (Kuris et al, 1980).…”
