Abstract

An investigation on the trematodes of Korean amphibians was carried out during the period from April to September of 1976. A total of 883 amphibians of 6 species were examined. These frogs, toads and salamanders were collected in the areas of the Han river side. And also these amphibians comprised 775 Rana nigromaculata, 53 Rana rugosa, 21 Hyla arborea japonica, 2 Bufo bufo gargarizans, 2 Gallula tornieri and 30 Hynobius leechi. Out of the results of this work, 7 species of trematodes belonging to 2 orders were found as follows: Monogenea: Diplorchis ranae Ozaki, 1931. Digenea: Diplodiscus japonicus (Yamaguti , 1936), Gorgodera japonica Yamaguti, 1936, Haematoloechus sibiricus japonicus(Yamaguti, 1936) , Mesocoelium brevicaecum Ochi, 1929, Loxogenes liberum Seno,1980, Pleurogenoides japonicus (Yamaguti, 1936).
