Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Egernia striolata is a species endemic to eastern and central Queensland, most of New South Wales except the coastal regions and the upper parts of the Great Dividing Range, scattered localities in Victoria, and the eastern parts of South Australia (Cogger 2014.Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia. CSIRO Publishing, Collingwood, Victoria, Australia. 1033 pp.). We are aware of only three parasite records for E. striolata, the haemosporidian Plasmodium mackerrasae (Telford 1979. J. Parasitol. 65:409–413), the nematode Pharyngodon tiliquae (Johnston and Mawson 1947.Trans. R. Soc. S. Aust. 71:22–27), and the tick Amblyomma moreliae (Roberts 1970. Australian Ticks. CSIRO Publishing, Melbourne, Australia. 267 pp.). The purpose of this note is to add to the endoparasite list for E. striolata.
