Haplorchis parataichui

Haplorchis parataichui Pearson, 1964

This trematode is very similar to Haplorchis taichui. It was obtained in Australia by feeding a fish (Pseudomugil signifer) collected from freshwater creeks in Brisbane to a cat (Pearson JC. 1964. A revision of the subfamily Haplorchiinae Looss, 1899 (Trematoda: Heterophyidae). Parasitology 54:601-676.). The eggs are 24 to 28 µm long and 12 to 13 µm wide.
