Abstract

Cosmocercella samorekensis n. sp. from the intestine of Tribolonotus novaeguineae collected in Papua New Guinea is described and illustrated. Cosmocercella samorekensis is unique among species of Cosmocercella in that it is the only species to possess 3 pairs of vesiculate rosette papillae. Seven species of Nematoda were also present: gravid individuals of Aplectana macintoshii, Cosmocerca zugi, Meteterakis crombiei, Oswaldocruzia bakeri, and Parapharyngodon maplestoni and larva in cysts assigned to Abbreviata sp. and Riticulariidae gen. sp. Four new host records are reported.
