Abstract

Ten Hawaiian green turtles {Chelonia mydas) with fibropapilloma tu- mors were collected from three islands (Lanai, Maui, Oahu) and examined for digenetic trematode parasites. A total of 232 worms were recovered representing six genera {Angiodictyum, Carettacola, Hapalotrema, Learedius, Polyangium, Pyelosoma). The prevalence of infection does not appear to be affected by the size, sex, or locality of host.
