Abstract

In studies carried out on the parasites infecting ostriches ( Struthio camelus check for this species in other resources ) in Spain, trophozoites of Retortamonas sp. have been found in the intestinal contents of 28 out of 146 slaughtered ostriches. The species infecting ostriches could not be determined from the morphological data available. However, these findings are important as they constitute the first report of the genus Retortamonas check for this species in other resources in birds.
