The prevalence of sebekia mississippiensis pentastomida in american alligators alligator mississippiensis in north florida usa and experimental infection of paratenic hosts

, : The prevalence of sebekia mississippiensis pentastomida in american alligators alligator mississippiensis in north florida usa and experimental infection of paratenic hosts. Proceedings of the Helminthological Society of Washington 52(2): 278-282

The pentastomid S. mississippiensis was found in 29 of 31 alligators examined from 2 lakes in Alachua County, Florida. The majority of parasites found in the lungs were lymphs, no eggs were found on fecal examination. Nymphs obtained from naturally infected mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis, survived in 2 spp. of laboratory rodents, 2 spp. of turtles and 1 frog species when administered by oral gavage. Live nymphs were recovered 28 and 120 days after infection from the rodents and turtles, respectively, and 24 h after administered in the frog. Hemorrhage due to nymphal migration killed the single infected frog within 24 h and resulted in significant intra-abdominal adhesions in other experimentally infected animals. There was no apparent development beyond the nymphal stage in any of the experimentally infected animals.
