Helminth parasites of native frogs (Leiopelmatidae) from New Zealand



Helminth parasites of native frogs (Leiopelmatidae) from New Zealand



Canadian Journal of Zoology 663: 707-713



The 3 native frog species of New Zealand were examined for gastrointestinal helminths. Leiopelma hamiltoni was uninfected. L. hochstetteri was parasitized by Aplectana novaezelandiae sp. nov. and Cosmocerca australis sp. nov. (both Cosmocercidae: Cosmocercinae), and Dolichosaccus (Lecithopyge) novaezealandiae. Leiopelma archeyi was infected with C. archeyi sp. nov.
