Falcaustra Lane, 1915 

(= Spironoura Leidy, 1856  ; = Florencioia Travassos, 1920  ; = Dibulbiger Caballero, 1935  ; = Zanclophorus Baylis and Daubney, 1922  ; = Nematoxynema Skrjabin and Schikhobalova, 1951  ; = Velariocephalus Singh, 1958  )

Falcaustra mascula (Rudolphi, 1819) Freitas and Lent, 1941 

(= Ascaris mascula Rudolphi, 1819  ; = Ascaris leptodactyla Parodi  in Savazzini, 1930; = Florencioia mascula (Rudolphi, 1819) Travassos, 1919  ; = Florencioia nitida Travassos, 1919  ).

Host and record: Rhinella schneideri (Werner, 1894) (Co)  , Leptodactylus latrans (Steffen, 1815)  (= L. ocellatus  ). Site of infection: Large intestine.

Material deposited: CECOAL 0 2052663 ( R. schneideri  ).

References: Savazzini (1930), González & Hamann (2008).

Life cycle: The life cycle of this genus is unknown, but third-stage larvae have been found in snails and fishes, and it is also agreed that snails and fishes are paratenic hosts ( Bartlett & Anderson 1985; Moravec et al. 1995). The adults parasitize mainly turtles, less frequently amphibians and fish, and even one species of bird ( Baker 1987).

Falcaustra sanjuanensis González, Sanabria and Quiroga, 2013 

Host and record: Odontophrynus cf. barrioi (Sj)  , Lithobates catesbeianus (Shaw, 1802) (Sj)  . Site of infection: Large intestine.

Material deposited: MLP-He 6615 (H), 6616 (A), 6617 (P) ( O. cf. barrioi  ), CECOAL 12100501 (P) ( O. cf. barrioi  ), MLP-He 6705 ( L. catesbeianus  ), CECOAL 13111102 ( L. catesbeianus  ).
