In this study, measurements of oocysts, sporocysts
, and sporozoites of the Caryospora species observed were obtained.
Cotylurus flabelliformis may also penetrate snails of Planorbidae and Physidae, but only if they are infected by other species of trematodes, where its encysts within sporocysts
and/ or rediae (Cort, Olivier, & Brackett, 1941).
The oocysts with 4 sporocysts
were considered sporulated regardless the shape and size of the sporocysts
The twenty-six selections that make up the main body of the text are devoted to schistosoma egg, miracidium of schistosoma, schistosoma sporocysts
, cercaria of schistosoma, the alimentary tract of schistosoma, and many other related subjects.
Identification was based on the morphological features of the oocyst and sporocysts
(size, shape and presence or absence of a micropyle or polar cap or oocyst residuum) under the 100 x objective, with the aid of taxonomic keys (Soulsby, 1968; Pellerdy, 1974; Levine, 1985; Coudert, 1992).
These animals can be infected if they ingest sporocysts
or sporulated oocysts present in food or water (DUBEY & LINDSAY, 2006).
2) that penetrate the foot of an aquatic lymnaeid snail, developing into sporocysts
that give rise to rediae by asexual reproduction.
The oblique muscle fiber got damaged and mother sporocysts
take place within foot muscles, thereby causing splitting, necrosis and increased empty spaces within muscle fibers (Figure 7a-7c).
were found under microscope having four sporocysts
, each containing two sporozoites.
6] stated that infestation by sporocysts
which are structures of digenetic trematodes could be a threat for host bivalve because of its potential to reduce host fecundity.
Man may be suffering from diarrhea, allergies, abdominal pain, eosinophilic myositis, peripheral blood eosinophilia, bloating, nausea, anorexia, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and pulse becomes severe, caused by eating undercooked meat and coddle, or sporocysts
as the final and intermediate host.
The success of infestation was determined by observation under light microscope or dissection of some snails to detect the presence of sporocysts
or rediae in the snail's hepatopancreas.
