Abstract

Three nematode parasites of Vespertilio orientalis are described. Molinostrongylus tsuchiyai sp. n. is characterized by a lack of synlophes, well-developed lateral alae (0.020~0.030 mm in width), and spicules with a spur-like structure. Litomosa japonica sp. n. is characterized by a very long esophagus (more than 0.8 mm long). Litomosa sp., female specimens, is differentiated from L. japonica sp. n. by a shorter esophagus and three caudal projections.
