Abstract

© 2017 This study aimed to report the occurrence of species of nematodes in wild carnivore mammals from a locality of Atlantic forest in Brazil. Specimens of wild carnivore mammals of 3 species were necropsied: Chrysocyon brachyurus (Illiger, 1815), Cerdocyon thous (Linnaeus, 1766), and Puma (Herpailurus) yagouaroundi (É. Geoffroy, 1803). Seven species of nematodes were recorded: 5 in C. brachyurus [Uncinaria stenocephala (Railliet, 1884), Dioctophyma renale (Goeze, 1782), Strongyloides sp., Trichuris vulpis (Froelich, 1789), and Oslerus (Oslerus) sp.]; 2 in C. thous [Angiostrongylus raillieti (Travassos, 1927), and Strongyloides sp.] , and only 1 species [Cylicospirura subaequalis (Molin, 1860)] in P. (H.) yagouaroundi. Strongyloides sp., T. vulpis and Oslerus (Oslerus) sp. were recorded for the first time in C. brachyurus from Brazil, and the first one of C. subaequalis in a host from Brazil in their type host since the original description date from 1860.
