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.
