Ectoparasite of fish, amphibians, and reptiles
Ventral sucker that is used as a "holdfast" organ of attachment for digenetic flukes
Motile stage emerging from operculated fluke egg
Developmental stage following penetration of the miracidium into snail (first intermediate host)

Stage that follows the redia; stage that emerges from the second intermediate host

Simultaneously possessing both male and female reproductive organs
Encysted stage in the life cycle of the trematode usually found on vegetation or within second intermediate host
