Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani diploid type in northern part of hyogo prefecture japan 4. geographical distribution in yabu and asago gun and a new habitat of paragonimus miyazakii new record in asago gun



Japanese Journal of Parasitology 33(4): 305-316



From March 1982 to Aug. 1983, a total of 2055 crabs, Geothelphusa dehaani, collected at 36 localities in Yabu- and Asago-gun of Hyogo Prefecture were examined for the lung fluke. Among them, 92 crabs collected at 10 localities, 7 and 3 of which were situated in upper streams of the Maruyama River and the Ichi River, respectively, were positive for Paragonimus metacercariae. Metacercariae [262] were obtained from the crabs. Adult [70] and pre-adult [8] worms were recovered from dogs, cats and a rat 100-220 days afer infection with the metacercariae. On the basis of morphological examinations of the worms recovered from the animals, all flukes were identified as P. westermani (diploid type) except for 1 from Daijo in Asago-gun which was identified as P. miyazakii. Based on the results, Asago-gun was proved to be a new habitat for both P. westermani (diploid type) and P. miyazakii.
