We report echinostomiasis as an endemic trematode infection among schoolchildren echinostkma Pursat. Keys to the Trematoda. Our extensive sampling resulted in a successful match of sequences based on life-cycle stages from naturally infected intermediate and definitive hosts for three of the European species whose life-cycles have been completed experimentally, E.

Redescription of Echinostoma jurini Skvortzov, with a discussion of its identity and characteristics. The oral and ventral suckers are located fairly close to one another.
