Abstract: Eggs of Fasciolopsis buski for experimental examination of fasciolopsiosis were obtained from feces of artificially infected pig by several sieving and washing. Embryonic development, lasted 15 days at 30°C and hatching of miracidia was stimulated by low energy of light. Intermediate host, Segmentina hemisphaerula proved to be susceptible and the take varied between 25 and 46 per cent. Intramolluscan development lasted 60 days post infection at room temperature. Prepatent period was 50-65 days, peak of egg-production between 90-120 days (3000-4500 EPG) and later it decreased gradually.Keywords:
