Molecular analysis indicated that the tetrathyridia from the birds likely belonged to an undescribed species and are identical to pretetrathyridium stages recently found in Scincella
lateralis skinks in Oklahoma.
We then collected other three lizard species, Plestiodon chinensis, Sphenomorphus indicus, and Scincella
modesta, from geographical locations near each other, but with different microhabitats.
Two tick species (Ixodes scapularis and Amblyomma americanum) were collected from six species of lizards (Plestiodon fasciatus, Plestiodon laticeps, Plestiodon inexpectatus, Anolis carolinensis, Sceloporus undulatus, and Scincella
En cambio, Basiliscus vittatus, Gerrhonotus liocephalus y Scincella
assatus se registraron solo en BT, BPE y BE, respectivamente.

These species make up the prey base for many small predatory species such as lizards of the genera Scincella
(Slater 1949; Lewis 1951; Hamilton & Pollack 1961; Brooks 1964) and Plestiodon (formerly Eumeces) (Fitch 1954), shrews of the genus Blarina (Ritzi et al.
Little Brown Skinks (Scincella
lateralis) were negatively impacted by all treatments during the first post-treatment year, but appeared to be recovering during the second post-treatment year.

lateralis and Storeria dekayi in the oil plots (Table 4).
