Abstract

Parelaphostrongylus andersoni sp. n. from the musculature of Odocoileus virginianus in coastal Georgia and South Carolina is differentiated from other species of the genus by its greatly reduced gubernacular crura, shorter spicules with different morphology, and smaller body size. Third-stage larvae developed in the snails Mesodon perigraptus and Triodopsis vannostrandi. A minimum prepatent period of 60 days was found in experimentally infected deer.
