Spirorchiidae
provided by wikipedia EN

Spirorchiidae is a family of digenetic trematodes. Infestation by these trematodes leads to the disease spirorchiidiosis. Spirorchiids are mainly parasites of turtles.[1][2] It has been synonymised with Proparorchiidae Ward, 1921, Spirorchidae Stunkard, 1921, and Spirorchiidae MacCallum, 1921.

Genera

Hosts

Some species of spirochiids are parasites of the freshwater snail Indoplanorbis exustus.[3]

The cardiovascular parasites Learedius learedi, Hapalotrema postorchis, Monticellius indicum and Amphiorchis solus have been found in the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas).[4]

Spirhapalum siamensis is a parasite found in the heart of the Amboina box turtle (Cuora amboinensis).[5]
