The seasonal variation in percentage parasitization and in the average number of individuals of Echinomera spp. in Lithobius forficatus and L. variegatus is described and discussed. It is suggested that infection by Echinomera hispida may account for the low numbers of L.forficatus in damp woodlands.

Coccidia occur only in L. variegatusand the incidence of metazoan parasites is very low.
