The population of sheep (Ovis aries) located onto the Ile Longue (35 km-2, Kerguelen archipelago, Terres Australes et Antarctiques Francaises) originated from more than a hundred of individuals introduced between 1949 and 1980, while the population of Corsican mouflon (Ovis musimon), which inhabits the Ile Haute (6,5 km-2), results from a couple brought in 1957. The known origins of the founders, the simplicity and the isolation of these insular ecosystems, and the biological characteristics of these two populations lead to a compared analysis of some factors acting on their specific richness in helminths. Five nematode species were identified from the autopsy of twenty four digestive tracts of mouflon and six nematode species from the digestive tracts of four sheep. The results show that the specific richness in gastrointestinal helminths for these two hosts is equivalent and poor in species. Some hypothesis are advanced to explain the origin and the nature of the parasite spectrum of these two introduced ungulates.
