Abstract

A new genus is proposed in the family Amphibiophilidae based on specimens parasitic in Bufo marinus from Australia: Johnpersonia. The species Amphibiophilus egerniae Johnston and Mawson, 1947, parasite of Australian lizard, is classified in this genus. The only genus that it is close to is Batrachonema Yuen, 1965, parasitic in malayian Ranidae and peruvian Bufonidae. The two genera were classified in a new subfamily: The Johnpearsoniinae mainly characterised with a bursa of the 1-3-1 type. Johnpearsonia is differentiated from Batrachonema in that the female is monodelphic and the dorsal lobe of the caudal bursa is not reduced.An analysis of the relationships between the other primitive genera of Trichostrongylina parasitic in poikilothermic animals is done.
