Anatomical descriptionptions are presented of Euclinostomum heterostomum (Rudolphi, 1809) metacercariae, collected from the muscles of the Mocambique tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters); as well as of an egg-bearing adult trematode. The latter was obtained by experimentally infecting a hand-reared grey heron Ardea cinerea L. chick with metacercariae from the same fish species.
