Fascioloides

a genus of flukes (digenetic trematode) of the family Fasciolidae.

Fascioloides magna
found in the liver and rarely the lung of cattle, sheep, deer, pig and horse and in many wild ruminants in North America and Europe. Sheep are the only species which appear to suffer ill effects because of damage to the liver by the unrestricted migration of the flukes in this species. In the other host species the flukes are enclosed in cysts.
