Leucochloridium paradoxum is an endoparasite of the rectum of birds as an adult. There it feeds on passing digested matter. It shows little definitive host specificity as it is known to parasitize more than fifteen bird species including crows, jays, sparrows and finches. As a sporocyst, the worm absorbs nutrients through its tegument from its intermediate hosts, Succinea snails.
