Abstract Two new species are described from New Guinea pythons, i.e. Ophidascaris niuginiensis and O. Papuanus The former was from Chondro-python viridis and Liasis albertisi, the latter from L. Amethistinus. Development of O. Niuginiensis in mice involved a primary stage in the liver, a secondary stage in the mesenteric blood vessels and a tertiary stage in the skin, where growth occurred to a length of 50 mm or more. Initial growth, up to 10 mm, of O. Papuanus occurred in the liver and body cavity of mice; a secondary growth phase occurred in the body cavity of the python host.
