Gorgodera amplicava Looss, 1899a

Site of infection: kidneys and urinary bladder (in adult specimens); bladder, excretory ducts, stomach, intestine, colon, cloaca, Wolffian duct, oviduct, mesonephroi (in young specimens).

Recruitment: ingestion.

Distribution: Canada: Ontario ( Bensley, 1897; Looss 1899 a, 1899b; Stafford 1903; Cort 1912; CMNPA; USNPC). USA: Arkansas ( Parker 1941; Rosen & Manis 1976); Illinois ( Andrews et al. 1992; USNPC); Indiana ( Lank 1971); Iowa ( Ulmer 1970); Kentucky ( Parker 1941); Louisiana ( Bennett 1938; Goodchild 1954, 1955; HWML); Massachusetts ( Odlaug 1937; Goodchild 1945, 1948, 1950, 1955); Michigan ( Krull 1935); Mississippi ( Brooks 1979); Missouri ( Goodchild 1948, 1950, 1954; HWML); Nebraska ( Brooks 1976; Brooks et al. 2006a); North Carolina ( Brandt 1936; HWML); Ohio ( Odlaug 1936; Guberlet 1920); Oklahoma ( Guberlet 1919; Trowbridge & Hefley 1934); Tennessee ( Parker 1941); Texas ( Harwood 1932; Hollis 1972; Mayberry et al. 2000; Yoder & Gomez 2007; HWML); Virginia ( Campbell 1968); Wisconsin (HWML); undetermined locality ( Odlaug 1936; Lemke et al. 2008; USNPC).

Specimens in collections: CMNPA: 1900-1617a. HWML: 20127-20131, 20957, 22683, 23424, 23425, 33140, 33141, 48349, 49007. USNPC: 50312, 50313, 51638, 51642, 51643, 82013, 84815.

Remarks: This species has been registered exclusively in North America; the only record out of this region ( Kirghizia, Asia by Skarvilovich, 1950 in Yamaguti 1971) needs to be confirmed. Records of this species from Oklahoma (representing a new species, Gorgodera circava) were transferred to G. amplicava by Harwood (1932); unfortunately, no type specimens were deposited for specific status confirmation. In the same way, specimens from Ontario, Canada ( Cort 1912), Illinois (USNPC 51642, 51643 and HWML 20957), Mississippi ( Brooks 1979) and Texas ( Hollis 1972) were identified as Gorgodera minima, but Yamaguti (1971) considered this species synonym of G. amplicava.
