We describe verminous bronchitis and bronchiolitis in potoroid marsupials associated with a new species of Capillaria resident in the epithelial lining of bronchi and bronchioles. The parasite was associated with alveolar oedema and emphysema, and a mixed inflammatory cell exudate within and surrounding the airways.
