Haematoloechus medioplexus Stafford, 1902

Site of infection: lungs.

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: Canada: Quebec ( Fantham & Porter 1948). USA: Iowa ( Cain & French 1975).

No specimens in collections.

Remarks: Some species parasitizing Lithobates spp. in Mexico were recorded as H. medioplexus; further, they were re-determined as H. danbrooksi ( León-Règagnon & Paredes-Calderón 2002). This species is a second intermediate host specialist, parasitizing only anisopteran odonates ( Krull 1930; Snyder & Janovy 1994).
