Stephen R. Goldberg, Charles R. Bursey & Fred Kraus urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:B75CAEC3-8F00-4902-8BEC-61114B941C06 Thirty-four specimens of Dendrobates auratus from Honolulu, Hawaii were examined for helminths. Three species of Nematoda were found: Cosmocerca sp., Physaloptera sp. and Acuariid larvae; and one species of Acanthocephala as a cystacanth. Cosmocerca sp. was present in the largest number (51) and had the highest prevalence (52 %). All are new host records for this invasive species in Hawaii.
