Brevimulticaecum  sp. (larvae)

Host and record: Physalaemus albonotatus (Steindachner, 1864) (Co)  , Lepidobatrachus laevis Budgett, 1899 (Fo)  , Pseudis paradoxa (Linnaeus, 1758) (Co)  .

Site of infection: Mesentery, abdominal cavity, gastric serous membrane, intestine. Material deposited: CECOAL 10032304, 10032306 ( P. albonotatus  ), CECOAL 11020901 ( L. laevis  ); CECOAL 11020201, 11020202, 11020204, 11020205 ( P. paradoxa  ).

Life cycle: The occurrence of this larva in amphibian hosts indicates that they may play a role in transmitting this nematode, serving as either intermediate or paratenic hosts ( Moravec & Kaiser 1994; Bursey et al. 2001).
