|Abstract:||Two hundred three individuals representing 10 species of gekkonid lizards from Papua New Guinea collected from 2002 to 2005 were examined for helminths: Cyrtodactylus epiroticus ðn ¼ 2Þ, C. klugei ðn ¼ 2Þ, C. loriae ðn ¼ 7Þ, C. novaeguineae ðn ¼ 3Þ, C. sermowaiensis ðn ¼ 30Þ, Gehyra mutilata ðn ¼ 22Þ, G. oceanica ðn ¼ 27Þ, Gekko vittatus ðn ¼ 41Þ, Hemidactylus frenatus ðn ¼ 29Þ, and Lepidodactylus lugubris ðn ¼ 40Þ. One species of Digenea, one species of Cestoda, 18 species of Nematoda, as well as three taxa of nematode larvae (in cysts) were found. Thirty-one new host records and six new locality (¼ country) records are reported. Prevalence in endemic geckos was significantly higher than in nonendemic geckos.|
