Distribution of Clinostomum marginatum (Yellow Grub) Metacercaria in Smallmouth Bass Populations from Crooked Creek in North Central Arkansas
The increasingly heavier infections seen in the downstream sites are not due to poor water quality but probably to the combination of the greater presence of the definitive host, the great blue heron, and large intermediate host (smallmouth)populations.

Clinostomum marginatum (Yellow Grub) Metacercaria in Black Bass from the Caddo River in West Arkansas
The gill/total body larval ratio for Caddo bass was found to be higher at 8.9 but the ratio of 7 gives a reasonable estimate of Clinostomum burdens in a stream bass population.
Non-Invasive Technique for Assessing the Population Parameters of Metacercariae of Clinostomum marginatum in Smallmouth Bass(Micropterus dolomieu)
In this study strong correlations were found between the parasites seen in the orobranchial region and the rest of the host body and similar anatomical-site density correlations applied to other parasitic infections might dramatically reduce the amount of necropsy time needed for estimating total parasite numbers.
