Abstract

Six species of ranid frogs, Hylarana arfaki, Hylarana garritor, Hylarana jimiensis, Hylarana papua, Hylarana volkerjane, Hylarana waliesa, and 1 species of myobatrachid frog, Lechriodus aganoposis from Papua New Guinea, were examined for helminths. Found were adults of 6 species of Nematoda, Aplectana macintoshii, Cosmocercoides pulcher, Desmognathinema papuensis, Paracapillaria spratti, Paraplesioheduris ranae, and Pseudorictularia disparilis.
