Based on molecular data, E.

Secondly, although the nad 1 dataset was substantially expanded, the same lineages of E. Echinostoma is a genus of trematodeswhich can infect both humans and other animals.

Fried B, Graczyk TK, editors. Foodborne intestinal flukes in Southeast Asia. The arrangement of the collar spines, including the 5 corner spines, was clearly visible. The tegument posterior to the head collar is covered with scale-like spines.

Echinostoma – Wikipedia

Echinostoma have a digestive system consisting of a pharynxoesophagus and an excretory pore. These authors used nad 1 sequences to identify different larval stages of natural echinostome isolates from Australia and New Zealand and reported on the presence of isolates echinostona E. Adult isolates for four species recovered from echniostoma and experimental infections were also identified. Our study generated 74 novel partial nad 1 sequences for five of the six European species of Echinostoma included in the analyses; these were collapsed into 39 unique haplotypes.


NJ and BI analyses produced congruent results with minor topological differences. The newly-sequenced European isolates are shown in red. The life history of Echinostoma rodriguesi sp.

The metacercariae were detected mainly in the pericardial sac of the eechinostoma. When the eggs are in contact with fresh water they may become embryonated, and will then hatch and release miracidia. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

Ann Naturhist Mus Wien. The life cycle of Echinostoma friedi n. These morphological characters were similar to those of E. Bayesian inference phylogram reconstructed using partial 28S rDNA sequences for nine Echinostoma spp.


The cercariae penetrate a second intermediate host, or they remain in the first intermediate host, where they form metacercariae. The newly-sequenced European isolates are shown in red; stars indicate adult isolates from natural infections. Three species, Echinostoma sp.

However, a mislabelling of the sequence for E. Adult Echinostoma have two suckers: One haplotype of Echinostoma sp.

Echinostoma revolutum infection, Pursat Province, Cambodia. Please review our privacy policy. First, consistent with the recent study of Georgieva et al.

Echinostoma are internal digenean trematode parasites which infect the intestines and bile duct echinostomx of their hosts. Three ducks were orally infected with metacercariae each and 2 hamsters were orally infected with 50 metacercariae each.

Two specimens of Echinostoma revolutum. Small, scale-like tegumental spines were distributed on the surface around the ventral sucker Fig. Echinostomatidae in Spain and a discussion on the relationships within the ‘ revolutum ‘ group based on cercarial chaetotaxy. Along this line, Echinostoma hortense Asada, has been transferred to the genus Isthmiophora as I.
