  • Abstract:

    Four helminths are recorded from the Nylghiae (Boselaphus tragocamelus), India. One of these – Ashworthius martinagliai – a trichostrongylid stomach-worm, is new to science. Its morphology is described, together with the early fourth stage and late fourth stage female larva. Trichuris globulosus, Cotylophoron cotylophoron and Gastrothylax crumenifer are recorded from this host.
