  author={Eun-Bin Jung and Dong‐Wan Kim and Jin-Do Kim and Sung-Woo Park},
Many metacercariae in the musculature of southern top mouthed minnow (Pseudorasbora parva) cultured at a farm in Chonbuk Province. The excysted metacercariae looked yellowish white and were mm (1.66-5.81) in length and mm (1.01-1.64) in width for acetocarmin-stained specimens. The oral sucker measuring mm (0.11-0.24) in length and mm (0.15-0.33) in width, was located at the anterior end of the body. The ventral sucker situated at the fourth third of the body were measured mm (0.35-0.53) in…

Many encysted metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum of Rudolphi, 1814 were found in the flesh near the skin of goldfish sultured at a fish farm in Chonbuk Province, Korea, in the summer of 1995 and became moribund with listless swimming and finally died.

Radix auricularia coreana: natural snail host of Clinostomum complanatum in Korea.
An epidemiological survey was carried out to determine the first intermediate host of Clinostomum complanatum among freshwater snails in Korea, and metacercariae recovered from fish experimentally infected with C.complanatum cercariaes were morphologically identical to those from naturally infected fish.

Clinostomum complanatum, a species of metacercariae isolated from gill and muscle of Korean barbel (Hemibarbus mylodon), a natural monument fresh water fish in Korea, by morphological observation is reported.
In vitro Excystation of Metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) (Digenea: Clinostomatidae)
In vitro excystation of metacercariae of Clinostomum complanatum (Rudolphi, 1819) was studied, and the rate of excy station was affected by the temperature and/or pH of the medium.
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.
Morphologic, Pathologic, and Genetic Investigations of Bolbophorus Species Affecting Cultured Channel Catfish in the Mississippi Delta.
Genetic techniques used to identify all stages of the Bolbophorus parasite in all of its hosts revealed that there are two distinct species, B. damnificus (previously identified as B. confusus) and another, undescribed species; both species were found to infect the first intermediate host in commercial channel catfish ponds.

The first human case of Clinostomum complanatum (Trematoda: Clinostomidae) infection in Korea.
The patient was a 56-year old male who visited an otolaryngology clinic due to foreign body sensation and pain of the pharyngeal region for 3-4 days because he used to eat raw fresh-water fish.
