New species and new records of trematode parasites of Philippine wild birds



Philippine Journal of Veterinary Medicine ember; 40(2): 66-78



Fourteen species representing 10 genera and 9 families of trematodes from Philippine wild birds are reported. Four are described and illustrated as new species namely, Opisthorchis philippinensis from the jack snipe (Lymnocryptes minimus) and the common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus lozanoi); Brachylaima (Brachylaima) tubanguense from the Philippine coucal (Centropus viridis viridis); Lyperosomum (Lyperosomum) mindorense from the slaty-legged crake (Rallina eurizonoides eurizonoides) and Lyperosomum (Lyperosomum) velasquezae from the Philippine jungle fowl (Gallus gallus philippensis). These are differentiated from closely related species. Ten species are reported for the first time in the country constituting new locality record for the species and/or were previously recorded but from new hosts. These are Echinostoma ralli, Notocotylus intestinalis and Tanaisia (Tanaisia) fedtschenkoi from the greater painted-snipe (Rostratula benghalensis benghalensis); Ophthalmophagus charadrii from the buff-banded rail (Gallirallus philippensis philippensis); Transcoelium sp. and Notocotylus pacifer from the common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus lozanoi); Apatemon japonicus from both the greater painted-snipe and the common moorhen; Notocotylus naviformis from the wandering whistling-duck (Dendrocygna arcuata arcuata); Prosthogonimus pseudopellucidus from the slaty-legged crake; and Tanaisia (Tamerlania) zarudnyi from the Philippine jungle fowl. The genera Apatemon, Ophthalmophagus and Transcoelium are recorded for the first time in the Philippines. The distribution and ecological status of the bird hosts are presented.
