'We have found the earliest evidence for fish tapeworm, Echinostoma
worm, and giant kidney worm in Britain,' said study lead author Dr Piers Mitchell of Cambridge's Department of Archaeology.
Silva (2003), in his doctoral thesis, also reported the larval development of Echinostoma
paraensi (Lie and Basch, 1967) in the digestive gland of L.

In total, the following 13 metazoan parasite species were found: 2 monogenea (Gyrodactylus proterorhini and Gyrodactylus sp.) 6 digenean metacercariae (Tylodelphys clavata, Diplostomum spathaceum, Apatemon gracilis, Posthodiplostomum sp., Ascocotyle sp., and Echinostoma
sp.), 1 cestoda (Bothriocephalus acheilognathi), 3 nematodes (Spiroxys contortus, Eustrongylides excisus, and Contraceacum rudolphii), and 1 arthropoda Ergasilus (sieboldi).
Characterisation of proteins differentially present in the plasma of Biomphalaria glabrata susceptible or resistant to Echinostoma
These non-Fasciola infections are caused by parasites whose other known intermediate hosts are nonlymnaeid snails, which in the Philippines include Pila luzonica, second intermediate host for Echinostoma
ilocanum, and Oncomelania hupensis quadrasi, first intermediate host of Schistosoma japonicum.
trivolvis, Megalodiscus temperatus, and Fasciola hepatica (Sapp and Esch, 1994) which can cause disease in wildlife (Gustafson and Bolek, 2015), livestock (Case, 1953), and humans (Graczyk and Fried, 1998).
We tentatively attribute these trematode infections to Echinostoma
