Hall emends the diagnosis of Mosesia to include M. chordeilesia and gives a detailed account of the life-history of this species. The cercaria, which is identified with Cercaria neustica, develops in Goniobasis livescens and Pleurocera acuta; it is characterized by the arrangement of the cephalic gland ducts, the smaller virgula organ, the shape of the stylet and the very slightly dissimilar texture and staining reactions of the cephalic glands.
