The understanding of the diversity and distribution of helminth parasites is currently constrained by the limited number of host–parasite interaction databases, and the difficulty in accessing existing data. The London Natural History Museum's Host–Parasite Database represents one such underutilized database, containing over a quarter million helminth parasite occurrence records, accessible through a web interface. To enable users to programmatically search and manipulate data from this database, I developed an R package called helminthR. Here, I introduce the core functions of the package, and detail how helminthR can be used to obtain host–parasite interaction records, citations for interactions, and host taxonomic data.
