Özet

One female and two male nematodes were identified as Synhimantus (Synhimantus) laticeps (Rudolphi, 1819) Railliet, Henry et Sisoff, 1912 in the postmortem examination of a female goshawk's gizzard (Accipiter nisus) which was brought to our Parasitology Laboratory by the Directorship of Environmental and Forestry authorities of Samsun, Turkey in September, 2008. Some morphological features, measures and photographs of the nematodes were given within this report. To our knowledge, this is the first report of Synhimantus (S.) laticeps and also the genus from Turkey.
