During the past 4 years examination of 320 raccoons, Procyon lotor, from five southeastern states revealed 39 species of helminth parasites. These were identified and grouped as follows: TREMATODA: 24 species; CESTODA: 3 species; NEMATODA: 11 species; and ACANTHOCEPHALA: 1 species. Differences were noted between the helminthic fauna of hosts from coastal and inland habitats.
