Abstract

As part of ongoing research into the conservation of wild avian species in Niigata Prefecture, helminthological examination was conducted between March and November 2002 in Niigata Prefectural Bird Protection Center, Japan. A total of 50 individuals of 28 avian species was investigated, with parasitic helminthes collected from 26 individuals. The parasitic helminths belonged to 13 nematode, two acanthocephalan, and three trematode genera, and unidenfied cestodes were also collected. Three genera, Epomidostomum (host: Anser albifrons), Viktorocara (host: Fulmarus glacialis) and Diomedenema (host: Ardea cinerea) were new locality records in Japan.
