Abstract:   (520 Views)
Fourteen adult frogs including six banded frog, Rana camerani and eight marsh frog, Rana ridibunda ridibunda were collected from two sites of Chahar Mahal-o-Bakhtiari province at the southwest of Iran and then were examined for helminth parasites. Only Dolichosaccus rastellus  (50%) was found in R. camerani, Skrjabinoeces similis (50%) and metacercarian cysts of Codonocephalus urniger (12.5%) were found in R. ridibunda ridibunda. This is both the first report of Dolichosaccus rastellus in R. camerani as a new host for this parasite, and of Codonocephalus urniger in Iranian frogs; also a first report of Skrijabinoeces similis in south west of Iran.
