Bulinus (Bulinus) truncatus rohlfsi is known to be the most important vector of Schistosoma haematobium in certain south-eastern areas of Ghana. This species also occurs in the northeast where its importance in the transmission of schistosomiasis is not yet known but is probably surpassed by that of B. (Physopsis) globosus, the most widely distributed potential vector in Ghana.
