Parasite communities of two lizard species, Alopoglossus angulatus and Alopoglossus atriventris, from Brazil and Ecuador
Alopoglossus angulatus and A. atriventris from Brazil and Ecuador were examined for endoparasites. Alopoglossus angulatus harboured one species of Digenea, Mesocoelium monas, and two species of Nematoda, Cosmocerca vrcibradici and Oswaldocruzia vitti; A. atriventris harboured one species of Cestoda, Oochoristica sp., and three species of Nematoda, Cosmocerca vrcibradici, Oswaldocruzia vitti and Physalopteroides venancioi. Sorenson's index (0.57) indicated a significant difference between helminth communities for the two host species.
