, : Pentastomid parasites of the family Sebekidae Fain, 1961 in west African dwarf crocodiles Osteolaemus tetraspis Cope, 1851 from the Congo, with a description of Alofia parva n. sp. Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 62(3): 151-162

The lungs and viscera of 23 O. tetraspis obtained from markets in Brazzaville were examined for pentastomid infection. 21 animals were infected and harboured a total of 82 pentastomids, all belonging to the family Sebekidae and representing at least 2 genera and 3 species. Sebekia okavangoensis was present in the body cavity and lungs; the other 2 species were restricted to the lungs.
