Sphaeridiotrema globulus (Rudolphi, 1814) (Digenea): evidence for two species known under a single name and a description of Sphaeridiotrema pseudoglobulus n. sp



Sphaeridiotrema globulus (Rudolphi, 1814) (Digenea): evidence for two species known under a single name and a description of Sphaeridiotrema pseudoglobulus n. sp



Canadian Journal of Zoology 71(4): 700-707



Experimental infection of domestic ducklings with metacercariae believed to be those of Sphaeridiotrema globulus from snails (Bithynia tentaculata) in Quebec, Canada, and New Jersey, USA, revealed that there are 2 species known under this name. Study of museum specimens confirmed that the New Jersey specimens represent the original S. globulus; the specimens from Quebec represent a new species on morphological and statistical grounds.
