AbstractThe study aimed to supplement and update the knowledge of the species composition of endoparasites of the common noctule (Nyctalus noctula Schreber, 1774) from the Wrocław area. The study was performed on helminths isolated from 80 individuals of N. noctula from an urbanized area of the city center. Helminths from the following groups were isolated: Digenea (Plagiorchiidae and Lecithodendriidae), Nematoda (Molineidae and Physalopteridae) and Cestoda (Hymenolepididae). A total of 10,240 parasites were found. Overall prevalence was 96.25%, with the average intensity of infection being 132.9. Three species of trematodes were detected: Plagiorchis vespertilionis (78.75%), Prosthodendrium chilostomum (80%), Lecithodendrium spathulatum (68.75%), one species of tapeworm Vampirolepis skrjabinariana (20%) and 2 species of nematodes: Molinostrongylus skrjabini (63.75%) and Physaloptera myotis (5%) – a new species for N. noctula in Poland. To analyse the helminth population and the structure of the helminth community qualitative and quantitative parasitological and ecological parameters were used.
