Fasciola hepaticaova.

The large, elongate eggs of F. hepatica have a thin, bile-stained shell and an operculum that often is inconspicuous They are unembryonated when passed in feces. The intestinal fluke,

Faciolopsis buski, produces an egg that essentially is

indistinguishable from that of F. hepatica, and therefore has not been illustrated separately. Pressure applied to a coverslip preparation frequently may result in \u201cpopping\u201d the operculum (Fig 4). The adult parasites of F. buski and F. hepatica are illustrated in Fig 1 and 3 respectively.
