Abstract

The heligmonellid nematode Carolinensis minutus (Dujardin, 1845) Travassos, 1937 is recorded for the first time in Microtus agrestis (Linnaeus, 1761) in the United Kingdom. Small heligmosomoid specimens were recovered from a M. agrestis vole inhabiting mole (Talpa europaea Linnaeus, 1758) tunnels in mid Wales. The identity of these specimens was confirmed as C. minutus by >99% nucleotide identity with internally transcribed spacer (ITS) 1 and ITS 2 sequences in French C. minutus.
