Parasitoses caused by helminths of the family Capillaridae (Neuve- Lemaire, 1936) take an important place within the parasitic fauna of pheasants (Phasianus colchicus L.). The investigations were carried out on a pheasant farm in Romania during the period 1999-2001. The necroscopic examination revealed the presence of Capillaria sp. in 38.09% (48/84) of the adult pheasants and 43.85% (79/114) of the young pheasants. During our examination we identified 7 species of the family Capillaridae: Capillaria annulata, C.bursata, C.columbae, C.contorta, C.gallinae, C.phasianina and Thominx cyanopicae. This was the first recorded occurrence of Thominx cyanopicae (Lopez-Neyra,1947) infection in pheasants.
