Abstract

The helminth fauna was studied on 415 specimens of voles, Clethrionomys rufocanus bedfordiae, Apodemus argenteus hokkaidi and A. speciosus ainu. The animals were captured in the forest in the vicinity of Nopporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Through taxonomical examination, 15 helminth species were described : Paranoplocephala omphalodes, Coronacanthus apodemi, Cladothyridium sp., Strobilocercus fasciolaris, Cysticercus sp., Plagiorchis muris, Heligmosomum yamagutii, H. kobayashii n. sp., Longistriata hokkaidensis, Mammaniduloides hokkaidensis, Syphacia emileromani, S. montana, Heterakis spumosa, Trichuris sp. and Capillaria hepatica. Among these helminths, Heligmosomum kobayashii is new to science, and Paranoplocephala omphalodes and Cladothyridium sp. are new host and distribution records.
