It is shown that the first intermediate host is a lymnaeid snail and the second intermediate hosts are various pulmonate and prosobranch snails, mussels, frogs and freshwater turtles, and the final hosts are birds.
Redescription of Echinostoma trivolvis (Cort, 1914) (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae) with a discussion on its identity
The life-cycle of Echinostoma trivolvis (Cort, 1914) has been completed experimentally and the validity and identity of this species are discussed. Synonyms for cercariae and adults of E. trivolvis…

Life history and identification of Philophthalmus lucipetus from Israel.
The identity of the eyefluke from Israel and P. lucipetus was confirmed by successful cross-infections employing miracidia of the Israeli isolate in European (Bulgarian) Fagotia acicularis aciculari snails on the one hand and miracidia from Bulgaria in Israeli Melanopsis praemorsa on the other hand, but none infected Melanoïdes tuberculata snails from Israel.
A SURVEY OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND PARASITES IN WILD TURKEYS FROM NEBRASKA
During the 1997-98 fall hunting season, samples from 154 Wild Turkeys were donated by hunters to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC) Genetic and Forensic Laboratory. Assistance was provided…

Pseudechinoparyphium echinatum (Digenea: Echinostomatidae): experimental observations on cercarial specificity toward second intermediate hosts
Experimental infection of a host community comprised of 8 European gastropod species revealed an order of host utilization similar to that shown in single-species exposures, however, cercarial transmission success in P. peregra was significantly reduced and may have been due to the marked preference to cercariae for P. corneus.
An Overview of the Biology of Echinostomes
Larval and adult echinostomes provide good material for biological, physiological, biochemical, immunological and other studies in modern biology, and can be maintained easily and inexpensively in the laboratory.
Identification problems with species in the Echinoparyphium recurvatum complex from physid snails in the USA
Morphological observations of these cercariae showed considerable similarities in most of the characteristics the authors examined in these echinostomes, suggesting that they should be considered as species in the Echinoparyphium recurvatum complex, until further morphological and molecular studies be done on this group.
Life-cycle, delimitation and redescription of Catatropis verrucosa (Frölich, 1789) Odhner, 1905 (Trematoda: Notocotylidae)
The life-cycle of Catatropis verrucosa (Frölich, 1789) Odhner, 1905 has been completed experimentally starting from infected snails collected along the River Danube in Europe. Each stage of the…
