Abstract

Three macrocercous cercariae are described in detail and their second intermediate hosts determined. The cercariae appear to belong to the family Echinostomatidae and are compared to a macrocercous cercaria of the genus Petasiger. Some notes on preliminary experiments to determine the identity of the adult parasites are also included.
