Twenty-six gekkonid lizards from the Philippines consisting of Cyrtodactylus philippinicus (n = 12) and Gekko mindorensis (n = 14) were examined for helminths. One species of Cestoda as cycticercoids and 6 species of Nematoda: Bakeria schadi, Meteterakis longispiculata, Parapharyngodon maplestoni, Physalopteroides sp., Pharyngodonidae gen. sp., and Physalopteridae larva, were found. Both gekkonid species harbored Parapharyngodon maplestoni and Physalopteroides sp. Parapharyngodon maplestoni had the highest prevalence (50%) in C. philippinicus. The 2 gekkonid species were parasitized by a helminth community composed of Oriental helminths. Nine new host records are reported.
