Ninety-one California treefrogs, Hyla cadaverina, from three counties in southern California (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside) were examined for helminths. The trematode, Langeronia burseyi, and metacercariae of Alaria sp., Fibricola sp., and Gorgoderina sp.; the cestode, Distoichometra bufonis, and two species of nematodes, Rhabdias ranae and larvae of Physaloptera sp., were found. Helminth distribution patterns were found to be patchy; no two counties exhibited the same combination of helminth species.
