Abstract

HAVING been attracted on several occasions by the presence of actively swimming cercariæ of Fasciola hepatica in material collected for protozoan studies and searching for the intermediate host, I have come across several examples of Limnaea peregra harbouring perfectly developed cercariæ of the same species. Prof. Graham Kerr has also had similar experiences.
