Methodology is described for the laboratory maintenance of the life-cycle of Sanguinicola inermis, using common carp (Cyprinus carpio) as the definitive host and Lymnaea peregra as the intermediate host. Lymnaea auricularia was also infected but is not considered to be a suitable laboratory host. Tench (Tinca tinca) were susceptible to infection at high cercarial doses but subsequent infection rates were low. Goldfish (Carassius auratus) and Lymnaea stagnalis were refractory to laboratory infection.
