Batrachotrema is a genus of trematodes in the family Batrachotrematidae. It is the type-genus of the family, and its type-species is B. petropedatis. The type-species is the only species of the family found in Africa, (as opposed to south-eastern Asia,) and this distinction has led Cribb (2005)[2] to consider that a family-level distinction may be needed between B. petropedatis and other species of Batrachotrematidae; however, molecular testing will be needed to decide this point.[3] Batrachotrema also contains B. pseudobagri, the only species of Batrachotrematidae which is parasitic in a fish, rather than in frogs.
