This study is the first research, undertaken to determine the infection rate, biological characteristics and Longevity Lymnaea gedrosina.

Materials & Methods: A total of 6213 snails (Lymnaea gedrosina) were examined, 770 snails were kept in identical natural condition in a set of several water bodies. Using two methods of cercarial shedding by light and crushing of snails were identified.
