The life cycle of Cloacitrema michiganensis McIntosh, 1938 (Trematoda: Philophthalmidae)



The life cycle of Cloacitrema michiganensis McIntosh, 1938 (Trematoda: Philophthalmidae)



Journal of Parasitology 71(1): 28-32



Experimental infections of C. michiganensis were established in chicks by inoculation/cloaca with excysted metacercariae. Ovigerous adults were present 20 days later with eggs containing ocellate miracidia after 21 days. The eggs hatched in utero; the miracidium contained a fully developed redia. Rediae of 12 size groups were present in the digestive gland of naturally-infected Cerithidea californica. Megalurous cercariae are released and encyst on submerged objects.
