Clinostomum metacercariae are common endoparasites of fish and frogs. In this study, we examine taxonomic identity and developmental strategy of Clinostomum metacercariae infesting reed frogs Hyperolius kivuensis and H. viridiflavus in Rwanda. Moreover, we evaluate the impact of infestation on demographic and morphological life-history traits of the hosts. Morphological and molecular features, particularly genital morphology and COX1 sequences, provided evidence that the metacercariae belong to…

Component Endoparasite Communities Mirror Life-History Specialization in Syntopic Reed Frogs (Hyperolius spp.)
TLDR
The processes structuring component parasite communities in amphibians do not differ generally between temperate-zone and Afrotropical host species, but they do in the magnitude of ecological fitting.

Metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Trematoda: Digenea) in European newts Triturus carnifex and Lissotriton vulgaris (Caudata: Salamandridae)
TLDR
This is the first record of C. complanatum in European newts and, more generally, in amphibians in Europe, and sequences of a mitochondrial gene, cytochrome c oxidase I, and the ribosomal markers, internal transcribed spacers are identified.
The life cycle of Clinostomum complanatum Rudolphi, 1814 (Digenea, Clinostomidae) on the floodplain of the high Paraná river, Brazil
TLDR
The floodplain of the high Paraná river has suitable conditions for the maintenance of the life cycle of C. complanatum, and the high prevalences in birds, especially in A. cocoi, suggest some kind of mechanism facilitating the predation of infected fish.
HELMINTHS OF STOCKED RAINBOW TROUT (SALMO GAIRDNERI) WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO CLINOSTOMUM COMPLANATUM
TLDR
It appears that a community of ichthyoparasites can become established in a population of stocked fish in a single growing season in north temperate regions.
The Study of Clinostomum Complanatum (RUD., 1814) V. The Influences of Metacercaria of Clinostomum complanatum on Fish
TLDR
The result indicated that the worm might produce certain enzymes to facilitate the dissolution of fish tissues and cause the death of the fish due to the destruction of theFish body.
Pathology associated with three new Clinostomum metacercariae from Argentina with morphological and DNA barcode identification.
TLDR
The molecular and morphological approach supports the presence of three new lineages of clinostomid metacercariae in Argentina, which could lead to the discovery of a high number of lineages or species of Clinostomum from South America.
Parasitic infection of Cobitis elongatoides Băcescu & Mayer, 1969 by zoonotic metacercariae Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1814).
TLDR
Significant evidence that water velocity affects the number of C. complanatum metacercariae, regardless of the host's (Cobitis) microhabitat, is shown.
A new African species of parasitic Dero (Annelida, Clitellata, Naididae) in the urinary tract of reed frogs
TLDR
A new species of naidid oligochaete, Dero rwandae, detected in the bladder and the Wolffian ducts of reed frogs Hyperolius kivuensis from Rwanda, is described, the first record of an African Dero species infecting the urinary tract of anurans.
Morphological and Molecular Differentiation of Clinostomum complanatum and Clinostomum marginatum (Digenea: Clinostomidae) Metacercariae and Adults
TLDR
Recent data confirm the validity of the junior species, C. marginatum, by ∼1% differences in its 18S rDNA sequences and identified basic morphometrics in metacercariae that may be useful for discriminating the species.
