Abstract

A new heligmosomid nematode, Heligmosomoides protobullosus n. sp., from the small intestine of the Japanese grass vole, Microtus montebelli MILNEEDWARDS collected at several sites in Japan, was described. This new species is distinguished from H. bullosus by the absence of a bubble-like membrane in the bursa. This is the first record of the genus Heligmosomoides from the Japanese Microtus.
