Abstract

Wild Rattus norvegicus Berkenhout were live-trapped at two locations in Redlands and one location in Mentone and were examined for parasites.

Parasites found were the rat hookworm Nippoatrongylus muris Yokogawa, the rat pinworm Syphacia muris Yamaguti, the tapeworms Hymenolepis nana Von Siebold and Hydatigera taeniaeformis Batsch, and the flea Nosopayllus fasciatus Bosc.
