Abstract

This paper presents the life history of Plagiorchis dilimanensis sp. n. Its cercaria belongs to the Polyadena group of Sewell (1922) and is the first xiphidiocercaria to be reported from the snail Lymnaea philippinensis Nevill in the Philippines. The development of the adult was traced by feeding metacercariae from experimentally infected culicine mosquito larvae to a mouse.
