The Discovery of the Intermediate Host for the Trematode Moliniella anceps (Trematoda, Echinostomatidae) in Ukraine

The freshwater molluscs Lymnaea stagnalis (Linnaeus, 1758) are first reported as intermediate hosts of the trematode Moliniella anceps (Molin, 1859) Hübner, 1939, the parasite of meadow birds (Rallidae), in Ukraine (Dneprodzerzhynsk Reservoir, Poltavska oblast). Description and figure of metacercariae are provided.

Обнаружение промежуточного хозяина трематоды Moliniella anceps (Trematoda, Echinostomatidae) на территории Украины

Впервые для Moliniella anceps (Molin, 1859) Hubner, 1939, паразита пастушковых птиц (Rallidae), установлен промежуточный хозяин на территории Украины - пресноводный моллюск Lymnaea stagnalis (Linnaeus, 1758). Материал собран из Днепродзержинского водохранилища (Кременчугский р-н, Полтавская обл.). Приведено описание метацеркарий.
