Abstract

Capillaria crocodilus n.comb. is redescribed and figured from the epidermis of Crocodylus novaeguineae novaeguineae in Papua New Guinea. The new combination (for Paratrichosoma crocodilus) is formally recognized following an earlier suppression of the genus Paratrichosoma. 10 morphological features differentiating it from other members of the genus are listed. Trichosomoides nasalis is redescribed and illustrated from the distal nasal cavity of 5 of 232 Rattus fuscipes in New South Wales, Australia, and is a new host and geographic record.
