Dear parasitologists,
I am a new hand in the parasitology. Please give me some key help.
In my investigation of the helminths of Rana esculenta complex, I have
found three species of nematodes,  two of them in the small intestines
and recta and the third in the lungs of the froglet and adult hosts, one
species cestode. Two species of adult trematodes occurred in the kidneys
of the hosts. But it is difficult to me to identify them. I want to get
a normal guidance on the identification of the helminths in the frog and
also want to know how and where to get the relevant references.
Best Wishes!
LI Hai
