Abbreviata sp. *

Site of infection: intestine, stomach.

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: Cuba: Provincia Pinar del Río ( Martínez et al. 1982). USA: Virginia ( Campbell 1968).

No specimens in collections.

Remarks: Anderson (2000) pointed out that species of Abbreviata require insects as intermediate host. Larval specimens of this genus have been recorded from lizards, mainly in Australia and Borneo ( Myers & Kuntz 1969; Goldberg et al. 2000) and from Cuba in 10 species of reptiles and one amphibian species ( Barus 1972; Coy-Otero & Barus 1979).
