Sorry I took so long to reply, but I don't visit this
newsgroup frequently!

If you look at our taxonomic browser:

http://www3.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/tax.html

You will see that we have in GenBank almost 2000 DNA sequences
and 370 protein sequences represented in some 12 Schistosoma
species.

With this browser you can retrive these records, or refine
your query with Entrez.

(do not that what what represent in this 'tree' is what is
known at the DNA sequence level (ie we have sequences for the
organism, we then put it in our database, and does not
represent all we (you) know about Schistosoma.

      Schistosoma [1997 / 370] 
            Schistosoma bovis [5 / 2] 
            Schistosoma curassoni [1 / 0] 
            Schistosoma haematobium [18 / 12] 
            Schistosoma intercalatum [7 / 1] 
            Schistosoma japonicum (blood fluke) [56 / 62] 
            Schistosoma malayensis [1 / 0] 
            Schistosoma mansoni (blood fluke) [1893 / 291] 
            Schistosoma margrebowiei [2 / 0] 
            Schistosoma mattheei [3 / 0] 
            Schistosoma mekongi [5 / 2] 
            Schistosoma rodhaini [3 / 0] 
            Schistosoma spindale [3 / 0] 


If you have any question about this, please feel free to send
a message to our servive desk (info at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

cheers,
