METAGONIMINAE

METAGONIMINAE

The Metagoniminae subfamily of the Heterophyidae is characterized by having a fusion of the genital and ventral sucker into an organ called by some the genito-acetabulum. This ventral genital sucker is found displaced from the midline of the body in the genus Metagonimus which aids in the recognition of this genus of Heterophyid flukes.
