A new species of Paracooperia Travassos, 1935 was found in the small intestines of 4 bushbuck, Tragelaphus
scriptus (Pallas, 1766), and 3 greater kudu, Tragelaphus strepsiceros (Pallas, 1766), all culled in the
Kruger National Park. The nematodes appear to be widespread in the Park, since the bushbuck originated from
Skukuza in the central part of the Park, 2 of the 3 kudu from near Malelane in the south and the remaining kudu
from Pafuri in the extreme north. The worms are named Paracooperia devossi after Dr V. de Vos of the Kruger National Park and can be
differentiated from the closely related Paracooperia tragelaphi Gibbons & Khalil, 1980 by the single indistinct
ridge on 1 of the branches of the spicules. Furthermore, the spicules end as fairly large ovoid knobs, and vulvar
flaps are present in the females.
