Nineteen Brown Thrashers (seven adults, 12 immatures) were carefully examined for trematodes during the summer of 1968. Trematodes were recovered from ten hosts and include the following: Brachylaima sp. (intestine) ; Brachylecithum exochocotyle (gall bladder) ; Lutztrema microstomum (gall bladder) ; Lyperosomum oswaldoi (gall bladder and bile ducts) ; Tanaisia zarudnyi (ureter) ; Urogonimus certhiae (cloaca) ; and U. dryobatae (cloaca). All trematodes represent new locality records and all but B. exochocotyle and L. oswaldoi are new host records.
