We studied the helminth assemblage of a population of the iguanian lizard Enyalius bilineatus from an Atlantic forest area in Espírito Santo state, southeastern Brazil. Eighteen of the 27 individuals examined (66.7%) harbored helminths. A total of six helminth species were found, including acanthocephalan cystacanths (Centrorhynchidae), and five species of nematodes: Physaloptera lutzi, P. retusa, Oswaldocruzia benslimanei, Rhabdias sp. and larvae of an indeterminate species of Acuariidae. In the context of helminth assemblages from Neotropical iguanian lizards, that of E. bilineatus was similar in some parameters (such as species richness and number of core species) to those of other forest-dwelling species, but generally poorer when compared to open-habitat hosts.
