Abstract

Eighteen lesser mouse-eared bats, Myotis blythii (Tomes 1857) (Vespertilionidae) from Zanjan Province, Iran, were examined for parasites and found to harbor one species of Cestoda, Hymenolepis rhinopomae; one species of Nematoda, Molinostrongylus alatus; one species of Diptera, Penicillidia dufourdi; and one species of mite, Spinturnix andegavinus. Myotis blythii represents a new host record for Hymenolepis rhinopomae, and Iran is a new locality record for Molinostrongylus alatus.
