    The nematode Dracunculus medinensis sp. n. (Dracunculidae) is described from a single female specimen found in the body cavity of the anaconda, Eunectes murinus (Ophidia: Boidae), from the Mexiana Island, Amazon River delta, Brazil and one female previously recorded from the subcutaneous tissue of this host species imported from South America into Europe (ZOO in the Czech Republic). The new species is characterised mainly by markedly large, anteriorly protruding dorsal and ventral double papillae of the internal circle and small lateral papillae of the same circle, a widely rounded caudal end, the excretory pore situated just posterior to the nerve ring, a distinctly transversely striated cuticle and by the length (396-429 µm) of larvae from uterus. This is the first species of Dracunculus described from reptiles in South America.
