Distribution and habitats of the Bulinus africanus species group, snail intermediate hosts of Schistosoma haematobium and Schistosoma mattheei in South Africa



Distribution and habitats of the Bulinus africanus species group, snail intermediate hosts of Schistosoma haematobium and Schistosoma mattheei in South Africa



Water SA 31(1): 117-125



As intermediate host of Schistosoma haematobium and S. mattheei, the Bulinus africanus group plays a major role in the transmission of urinary and bovine schistosomiasis, diseases that negatively affect the health status of millions of people and their livestock in South Africa. Bulinus spp. can also play a role in the transmission of cercarial dermatitis (swimmer's itch) caused by the immune reaction of incompatible hosts to the penetration of cercariae of non-human schistosomes.
