Fishes serve as intermediate hosts to a number of avian digenetic trematodes. A survey on 10 different species of freshwater fishes belonging to 8 families from River Godavari from August 2005 to September 2007 revealed a total of 10 metacercariae of digenetic trematodes from five families i.e., Clinostomidae Lühe, 1901; Diplostomidae Poirier, 1886; Isoparorchiidae (Travassos, 1922); Strigeidae Railliet, 1919 and Heterophyidae (Leiper, 1909) Odhner, 1914. The metacercarial fauna dominated the… 
A survey of metacercarial infections in commonly edible fish and crab hosts prevailing in Manipur, Northeast India
The present study undertaken to ascertain the spectrum of metacercarial diversity in commonly edible freshwater fishes and crab species in the northeastern state of Manipur and to adjudge their zoonotic potential, if any, revealed that paragonimids showed a higher rate of occurrence compared to microphallids and crustaceans surveyed emerged as prospective intermediate hosts for lungflukes.

A survey of parasites in freshwater fishes from Nong Han wetland, Udon Thani Province, Thailand.
The diversity of fish parasites from freshwater fishes collected from the Nong Han wetland was studied by visually examining 22 freshwater fish species from 19 genera for external and internal parasites to provide critical information for the sustainable management of this wetland.
A new second intermediate host and phylogenetic relationships based on the ITS2 sequence of Isoparorchis sp. (Digenea: Isoparorchiidae) in Thailand
This study reports infections in freshwater shrimp (Macrobrachium lanchesteri and Caridina sp.), including overall prevalence, mean intensity, morphological characters and molecular analyses, and shows for the first time that the freshwater shrimp M. Lanchesteri serves as a second intermediate host of Isoparorchis sp.
A Combined Morphometric and Molecular Approach to Identifying Metacercariae of Euclinostomum heterostomum (Digenea: Clinostomidae)
The isolates of Euclinostomum obtained in this study form a single, monophyletic group separate from recently published data from Euclinstomum sp.


Occurrence and distribution of Clinostomum tilapiae Ukoli, 1966 and Euclinostomum heterostomum (Rudolphi, 1809) metacercarial infections of freshwater fish in Venda and Lebowa, southern Africa
During 1980 to 1982, parasitological surveys were carried out at large impoundments in Venda and Lebowa, southern Africa, coinciding with fish harvesting programmes, finding only Oreochromis mossambicus was found to be infected by Clinostomum tilapiae prevalent in the gills.

Studies-jon metacercariae of Perca flavescens in Lake Itasca, Minnesota.
It will be noted that neither Neascus vancleavei nor N. ambloplitis are included, although both have been reported from this host in other localities, and both are common in the rock bass,

Three unknownTetracotyle metacercariae, collected from piscine host, have been described and are characterised by the shape and position of pseudosuckers, shape of hold fast organ and hold fast gland and pattern of reserve excretory system.
Ecological and life-history studies on a strigeid metacercaria (Trematoda: Diplostomatidae) from freshwater fishes of Andhra Pradesh
The ecological relationships and life history of a Diplostomulum type of strigeid metacercaria encountered in several fresh-water fishes of Andhra Pradesh are described and it is suggested that D. heronei described by Srivastava (1954) may be a synonym of D. ketupanensis.
Trematode metacercariae of fishes as sentinels for a changing limnological environment.
The results show that the composition of the metacercarial populations changed significantly between the 2 samplings periods, and the calculated 'true' species richness of the habitat was significantly lower in the 1999 to 2001 versus 1982 to 1984 samples, while significantly fewer fishes needed to be sampled during1999 to 2001 in order to reach the 'true" species richness.
Occurrence of Clinostomum Complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) (Digenea: Clinostomatidae) in Capoeta capoeta gracilis (Osteichthys: Cyprinidae) from Shiroud River, Iran
Histopathological study revealed blood feeding metacercaria cause myositis in Capoeta capoeta gracilis and the prevalence and abundance of parasites were significantly higher in the area between the mouth to behind the opercle.

It was found that the number of diverticula from each intestinal caecum varies within species, hence Jaiswal's three species, E. channai and E. heptacecum are proposed as synonyms of E. heterostomum.
