Abstract

The pentastome Raillietiella indica was collected from the introduced toad Bufo marinus in Oahu, Hawaii, U.S.A. The parasite was identified as R. indica from similarities in morphology of the hooks, buccal cadre, and male copulatory spicule. This represents a new host record for this parasite, previously only recorded from Bufo melanostictus. This also represents a new locality record because this parasite has only been reported previously in India, Burma, and Taiwan. This is the third record of B. marinus as a host for parasites in Hawaii.
