Snail susceptibility or trematode infectivity



Snail susceptibility or trematode infectivity



Journal of Natural History 8(5): 545-548



Wright discusses the specificity of schistosome larvae for mollusc intermediate host species and describes the tissue reactions produced in the host. He reports that while Schistosoma mattheei will develop successfully only in snails of the Bulinus africanus group, and the Lower Guinea strain of S. intercalatum only in the B. forskali group; hybrid miracidia resulting from the cross S. intercalatum female X S. mattheei male were infective to both parental host snail groups.
