Abstract

Eighteen species of mammals from insular Newfoundland were examined for their helminth burden. -- Fifty-five species of helminths were recovered, of which three were trematodes, fourteen cestodes, thirty-seven nematodes and one acanthocephalan. Thirty-six species were recovered for the first time from Newfoundland mammals, one of which Anophryocephalus anophrys is a new host record for Phoca groenlandica. -- One domestic cat was found to harbour one specimen of a trematode, Plagiorchis massino, the only other occurrence of which in North America is in foxes in Alaska. Other than Alaska, the only other record of this worm is in cats and dogs in Armenia and Kazakhstan, U.S.S.R.
