Oswaldocruzia  sp.

Host and record: Leptodactylus bufonius Boulenger, 1894 (Co)  , Physalaemus albonotatus (Steindachner, 1864) (Co)  .

Site of infection: Small intestine.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 0 101005 ( L. bufonius  ), CECOAL 96040901 ( P. albonotatus  ). References: González & Hamann (2006 a; 2012 b).

Life cycle: The life cycle of these nematodes is monoxenous; the infective larvae penetrate through the skin of the hosts ( Ben Slimane et al. 1996 a; Anderson 2000).

Oswaldocruzia mazzai Travassos, 1935 

Host and record: Rhinella  sp. (Ju), Rhinella marina (Linnaeus, 1758)  (= B. marinus  ) (Ju) Site of infection: Small intestine.

Material deposited: Not specified.

References: Travassos (1935; 1937).

Notes: Durette-Desset et al. (2006) considered O. mazzai sensu Vicente (1981)  nec Travassos (1935) as species inquirenda.

Oswaldocruzia proencai Ben Slimane and Durette-Desset, 1995  (= Oswaldocruzia mazzai sensu Lent et al., 1939  nec Travassos, 1935)

Host and record: Rhinella schneideri (Werner, 1894) (Co, Sa)  , Rhinella arenarum  (= Ch. arenarum  ) (Sa). Site of infection: Small intestine, large intestine.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 3091901 ( R. schneideri, Co  ), CH-FML 0 7444 ( R. schneideri, Sa  ), CH-FML 0 7448 ( R. arenarum  ).

References: Ramallo et al. (2007 a; 2007 c), González & Hamann (2008). Notes: Ben Slimane and Durette-Desset (1995) established this species from Paraguayan specimens reported as O. mazzai  by Lent et al. (1946).

Oswaldocruzia subauricularis (Rudolphi, 1819) 

Host and record: Rhinella fernandezae (Gallardo, 1957) (Co) Site  of infection: Small intestine.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 8102211

References: Hamann et al. (2013).

Notes: Durette-Desset et al. (2006) established that the species reported as O. subauricularis sensu Freitas, 1955  nec Rudolpphi, 1819 should be considered as a species inquirenda.
