Abstract

A new species of the genus Parapharyngodon, Parapharyngodon anomalus, is described from the Australian echidna, Tachyglossus aculeatus. This nematode is morphologically similar to 2 previously described species which occur in Australian reptiles. This is the first report of a member of this genus occurring in amammal. The significance of this finding is discussed.
