AbstractThree species of the genus Helicella Férussac, 1821 (H. zaratei, H. ordunensis and H. bierzona) have been tested as intermediate hosts of Dicrocoelium dendriticum under experimental conditions. The percentages of egg hatching in the midgut are similar for all three species (86.49, 82.21 and 80.20). In all three species, sporocysts were found during examination 60 days after infection, their size varying between 429.2 m and 58.0 m. According to the results it would seem that H. zaratei is a better intermediate host than the other two species. We discuss the ecological value of the species, with reference to their distribution.
