Fifty-six Gallinula chloropus cachinnans and 52 Porphyrula martinica from 7 localities in Florida, USA, were examined for helminths. 8 trematode, one cestode, 12 nematode and 2 acanthocephalan species were found: 6 trematode, one cestode and 5 nematode species occurred in both hosts. P. martinica had a lower level of parasitism than G. chloropus cachinnans, with a larger number of helminth-free hosts, a lower number of multiple infections and a smaller number of worms per infected host.
