Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani di ploid type in northern part of hyogo prefecture japan 1. geographical distribution in toyooka city and izushi gun and morphological characteristics of metacercariae



Japanese Journal of Parasitology 31(6): 545-560



During the period from Aug. 1979 to Nov. 1981, a total of 3201 crabs, Geothelphusa dehaani, collected from 53 localities in Toyooka City and Izushi-gun were examined for the lung fluke. Among them, 876 crabs collected from 18 localities were positive for metacercariae of the diploid type of P. westermani. P. westermani is densely distributed but the habitat is restricted in the northeastern mountainous region of the surveyed area bordered on Kyoto Prefecture. No distinct differences between the metacercariae of the diploid type from Tajima and of the triploid type from Ehime Prefecture are observed except for the size of the former being slightly larger than that of the latter. The location and the discovery rate of the metacercariae in the infected crabs are 65.1% in the muscle, 22.1% in the liver, 6.6% in the inner membrane of carapace, 3.6% in the gill, and 2.5% in the others.
