Paramphistomatidae

Wikipedia Abstract

Paramphistomatidae is a family of flukes which are parasitic on herbivorous mammals, and sometimes humans. All members are obligate parasites requiring a mammalian host and snails for completion of their life cycle. The adult worms are found in the intestinal tract and liver. The body is characterised by leaf-like fleshy structure with a large posterior sucker.
