TEIXEIRA, A. A. M. et al. Helminths of the Lizard Salvator merianae (Squamata, Teiidae) in the Caatinga, Northeastern Brazil. Braz. J. Biol. [online]. 2017, vol.77, n.2, pp.312-317.  Epub 29-Ago-2016. ISSN 1519-6984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1519-6984.13515.

The lizard Salvator merianae is a widely distributed species in South America, occurring from southern Amazonia to the eastern Andes and northern Patagonia. Studies on the parasitic fauna of this lizard have revealed that it is a host for helminths in various Brazilian biomes. The present work provides new parasitological data on the gastrointestinal nematodes associated with the lizard S. merianae. Sixteen specimens were analyzed from nine different locations in a semi-arid region in northeastern Brazil. Five species of nematodes were identified. Oswaldofilaria petersi was first recorded as a parasite of the S. merianae, thus increasing the knowledge of the fauna of parasites that infect large Neotropical lizards.

Palavras-chave : parasitism; nematode; Oswaldofilaria petersi; Brazilian semiarid.
