15 Anatolian worm lizards, Blanus strauchi, (1 juvenile, 9 adult males, 5 adult females) which were collected in the Hatay province of Turkey were investigated for the presence of helminth fauna. At the end of the study, 2 species of helminth were found. These are Parapharyngodon micipsae and Thelastomatoid nematoda (Nemathelminthes). This is the first study that has been carried out on Blanus strauchi both in Turkey and the world. The parasites found make a new record for Turkey.
