Length: 0.06 to 0.01 cm (Ref. 359). Host Specificity: This worm only occurs in great barracuda (Ref. 359). Members of the class Trematoda are parasitic, thus requires a host to survive. Life cycle: Eggs are passed on to the feces of the hosts. Embryos hatch into miracidia and penetrate the tissues of snails where they further undergo three stages: sporocysts (Ref. 833).
