Abstract: The current study provides the first important data on the helminth fauna of Mustela nivalis Linnaeus, 1766 (Carnivora: Mustelidae) in Western Europe. The analysis of 168 specimens, originating from 29 Spanish provinces, allowed the detection of nine parasite species: Taenia mustelae Gmelin, 1780 (Taeniidae), Aonchotheca putorii (Rudolphi, 1819) (Trichuridae), Trichinella sp. (Trichinellidae), Strongyloides mustelorum Cameron et Parnell, 1933 (Strongyloididae), Molineus patens (Dujardin, 1845) (Molineidae), Crenosoma melesi Jancev et Genov, 1988 (Crenosomatidae), Filarvides martis (Werner, 1783) (Filaroididae), Skrjabingylus nasicola (Leuckart, 1842) (Skrjabingylidae) and Mastophorus muris (Gmelin, 1790) (Spirocercidae). Moreover, the influence of some ecological factors (host sex and geographical location) on the parasitic fauna have been analysed.
