Host and record: Rhinella fernandezae (Co)  , Scinax nasicus (Cope, 1862) (Co)  , Scinax acuminatus (Cope, 1862) (Co)  .

Site of infection: Gastric serous membrane.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 9020606 ( R. fernandezae  ), CECOAL 0 4101102, 0 5042115 ( S. nasicus  ), CECOAL 0 4101101 ( S. acuminatus  ).

References: Hamann et al. (2009 b; 2010; 2013); González & Hamann (2010 b). Life cycle: Amphibians act as paratenic hosts; amphipods and, especially, ephemeropters, as intermediate hosts.

Adults are parasites of the digestive tract, the abdominal cavity and some internal organs especially of coldblooded vertebrates; they are rare in mammals ( Anderson 2000).
