Abstract

Incidental to a study being conducted on the cercariae infesting the snails of Carrol Lake, Oneida County, Wisconsin, it has been found that certain Xiphidiocercariae, when in high concentrations, will kill fish of various species. Controlled experiments using five cercariae of the stylet group indicated that the cercariae to which the provisional designations D. S. and Eta have been given pending publication of their descriptions were lethal to sunfish, perch, and large-mouth bass when they were placed in battery jars with from three to forty-eight infested snails, while C. Gamma and the cercaria of Plagiorchis ameiurensis, McCoy, 1928 were not.
