The digestive tracts of 8 Chalcides ocellatus, now established in Mesa, Maricopa County, Arizona, U.S.A., were examined for helminths. Found were 2 species of Nematoda previously restricted to the Old World, Moaciria icosiensis and Spinicauda sonsinoi. The New World is a new host locality for M. icosiensis and S. sonsinoi. The helminth fauna of New World C. ocellatus (2 species of Nematoda) is depauperate when compared to that of Old World (Turkey) C. ocellatus, which contained 1 species of Digenea, 1 species of Cestoda, and 6 species of Nematoda.
