Abstract

Seven males of Mustela sibirica itatsi TEMMINCK, a male of Mustela nivalis namiyei KURODA and 3 males of Martes zibellina brachyura TEMMINCK captured at Teshio district of northern Hokkaido, Japan, were examined. Helminths obtained were : 5 species of Nematoda, Capillaria putorii RUDOLPHI, 1819,Capillaria sp., Spiruridea gen. sp. (larva), Filaroides martis (WERNER, 1782) DOUGHERTY, 1943,Strongyloides sp.; one of Trematoda, Echinostoma hortense ASADA, 1926 ; and one of Acanthocephala, juvenile form of Centrorhynchus elongatus YAMAGUTI, 1935. C. putorii is the first record from Japan. It is supposed that F. martis is widely distributed in the mustelids of Hokkaido. Juvenile form of C. elongatus is the first recorded from the mustelids.
