Helminth eggs in animal coprolites from a Middle Pleistocene site in Europe.

Abstract

This paper reports on the discovery of dicrocoelid eggs in a coprolite collected in an archeological layer dated earlier than 550,000 yr BP (before present) from the Caune de l'Arago cave (Tautavel, Pyrénées-Orientales, France). It is the first trematode egg finding in an isolated coprolite from the Middle Pleistocene context.
