    Abstract: A distinctive new species of the arboreal viper genus Atheris (A. broadleyi) is described from Cameroon, Africa. The new taxon inhabits moist evergreen and semideciduous transition forest in southern Cameroon, Congo, Central African Republic and Gabon. The new species previously has been confused with the widespread A. squamigera, but is distinguished from this species and other congeners by a combination of scale characteristics and a unique color pattern.

    Abstract: Strip-transect methods were used to assess distribution and density of the dwarf crocodile, Osteolaemus tetraspis osborni, in a pristine region of the Likouala swamp forest, east of the Batanga River, northern Congo Republic, during the 1995 and 1996 dry seasons. Surveys by day were undertaken to locate the presumably solitary animals that occupied the few remaining permanent pools. The cumulative percentage of inhabited pools (n = 34) was a function of the perpendicular distance of the center of the pool from the transect line. The effective distance was 19.5 m (strip width = 39 m). Strip surveys covered a linear distance of 28.36 km and yielded a total of 57 "permanent" pools, subjectively deemed suitable for crocodiles. Eight pools were associated with nests guarded by an attendant female. Crocodiles were not found in the interior of swamp forests but were limited to a peripheral zone, approximately 2.5 km wide, adjacent to terra firma forest. Within this zone minimum population density was calculated at one per 3.62 ha (0.28 crocodiles per ha).

    Abstract: Five new species of the genus Dujardinascaris Baylis, 1947 are described from Old World crocodilians: D. petterae n. sp. in Osteolaemus tetraspis from the Congo, Central Africa; D. blairi n. sp in Crocodylus johnstoni from Northern Australia; D. harrisae n. sp., D. angusae n. sp., and D. westonae n. sp. in C. porosus from Papua New Guinea. The species are differentiated by the relative length of the spicules, the shape of the gubernaculum and the form of the male tail. Females of the species cannot be readily distinguished morphologically.
