Abstract

Helminths from a total of 24 species of small mammals, representing three orders (Insectivora, Chiroptera, Rodentia) were examined in Zhiguli State Reserve. 90 species of helminthes were identified: Trematoda – 24, Cestoidea – 21, Nematoda – 43 and Acanthocephala – 2. For each of helminth species the following traits are specified: systematic position, hosts, localization, host specificity, sites of findings and geographical distribution. Rodents, in which 33 helminth species were noted, were proven to have the richest fauna of parasites. In chiropterans and insectivores 32 and 28 species of helminths were registered, respectively. Only one of parasite species was common to all three orders of mammals – an acanthocephalan Moniliformis moniliformis. 14 species of parasites were discovered in mammals of Russia for the first time: Prosthodendrium hurkovaae, Rodentolepis erinacei, Staphylocystis syrdariensis, Aonchotheca erinacei, Crenosoma striatum, Tricholinstowia linstowi, T. talpae, Molinistrongylus alatus, M. spasskii, M. vespertilionis, Pterothominx neopulchra, Pterygodermatites bovieri, Syphacia nigeriana, Centrorhynchus aluconis, larvae, Moniliformis moniliformis, larvae. 21 species of parasitic worms were found for the first time in mammals of the Volga River basin. Nine of helminth species recovered from the small mammals of Zhiguli State Reserve are of epidemiological and epizootiological importance.
