status

 

Hedruris siredonis ( Baird, 1858)

Site of infection: stomach.

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: USA: New Hampshire ( Muzzall & Baker 1987).

No specimens in collections.

Remarks: Although this species is more frequently recorded as parasite of salamanders, infections in American bullfrogs do not appear to be accidental, and they can acquire the infection by predation on aquatic infected isopods ( Muzzall & Baker 1987).
