Abstract

The life history of Echinostoma cinetorchis was completed in the laboratory using Hippeutis cantori as the first and second intermediate host. The incubation for maturation of eggs and hatching of miracidia took 24 days at 28 degrees C. On the 66th day after miracidial challenge, 16 snails were crushed and examined for the presence of E. cinetorchis larvae. The metacercariae were detected in all of the snails, and from three of them were found the rediae and cercariae. The morphological characteristics of the larvae and the experimentally obtained adults were compatible with that of E. cinetorchis.
