Forty-five ocellated bronze skinks, Chalcides ocellatus (17 males, 26 females, and 2 juveniles), from eight localities in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey were examined for helminths. Forty-four hosts were infected with 1 or more species of helminth. One species of Digenea, Brachylaima sp. (metacercaria), 1 species of Cestoda, Oochoristica tuberculata, and 6 species of Nematoda, Parapharyngodon bulbosus, Pharyngodon inermicauda, Pharyngodon mamillatus, Skrjabinodon aegyptiacus, Spinicauda sonsinoi, and Moaciria icosiensis, were found. Chalcides ocellatus represents a new host record for Brachylaima sp. and Turkey is a new locality record for P. bulbosus, Ph. inermicauda, Ph. mamillatus, S. aegyptiacus, Sp. sonsinoi, and M. icosiensis.
