A total of 3,780 brackish water snails, Assiminea
spp. collected from Hadong, the delta area
of the Surnjin River, South Kyong-Sang Do,
Korea were examined for the larval fluke infection
of Paragonimus. These included 684 Assiminea
yoshidayukioi, 1, 715 Assiminea parasitologica
and another 1, 381 Assimina sp. All
species of the snails examined were found
infected with the larval fluke except A. yoshida :>,ukioi.
Six(0.35%) out of 1,715 individuals of the
snail A. parasitologica and six (0.43%) out of
1,381 specimens of unidentified Assiminea sp,
were found naturally infected with cercariae
and rediae of Paragonimus. These larval flukes
from the infected snails were verified to be
identical with those of P. iloktsuenensis described
by earlier investigators.
In addition to the above results obtained, this
locality, Hadong has already been known as
-one of the enzootic areas of P. iloktsuenensis
through the findings of the metacercariae and
.adult worms of this fluke from crabs and rodents.
Accordingly, it was definitely concluded that
Assiminea parasitologica Kuroda, 1958was found
for the first time to be the first intermediate host
.for Paragonimus iloktsuenensis Chen, 1940 in
