The lungs and viscera of 23 dwarf crocodiles (Osteolaemus tetraspis) obtained from markets in Brazzaville,
were examined for pentastomid infection. Twenty-one animals were infected and harboured a
total of 82 pentastomids, all belonging to the family Sebekidae and representing at least two genera
and three species. Sebekia okavangoensis Riley & Huchzermeyer, was present in the body cavity and
lungs; the other two species were restricted to the lungs. Alofia parva n. sp. (14 female; 10 male) was unusual
in that the fulcrum supporting the anterior hooks carried a cowl-like extension. The remaining species,
provisionally allocated to the genus Sebekia, could not be classified to the generic level with certainty.
