Abstract

THE remarkable dimorphism of the monogenetic trematode Polystoma integerrimum has been the subject of a number of investigations, principally by Zeller1,2 and Gallien3. The descriptions of the neotenic (branchial) form given by these authors show several important discrepancies, and in view of this a re-examination of the species was undertaken.
