The Oxyurid parasites of Reptiles form a group of very interesting forms and have been a subject of study by several distinguished helminthologists from early times. The earliest account, in a connected form, to which the writer has been able to refer is that given by Rudolphi (1819). This author, though recognising the genus Oxyuris, restricts to it the forms found in mammals and more particularly Oxyuris vermicttlaris from the large intestine of man and Oxyuris curvula from the caxum of horse; the Oxyurids of all other animals he refers to the genus Ascaris.
