Abstract An analysis of natural infections of Toxocara mackerrasae in rattus fuscipes trapped in rain forests in south-eastern Queensland is given and Hydromys chrysogaster is listed as a new host. T. mackerrasae larvae in egg-infected mice are incapable of somatic migration but some complete development to the young adult stage can occur entirely within the alimentary tract. T. mackerrasae is capable, in low numbers, of developing to maturity in experimentally infected Rattus spp. The work was financed by grants from the University of Queensland and the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. I wish to thank Professor J. F. A. Sprent for his criticisms and suggestions during the preparation of this text.
