A flattish round worm, called the gourd worm, from its resemblanee to a gourd seed; and the fluke, from its resemblance to a worm found in ditches, is distinguished chiefly by a vent hole at the extremity and on the belly. A worm of this kind is found in the liver, sometimes nearly an inch in its longest diameter, and about two thirds of an inch in the shortest. It is rounded on the back, and has eight deep longitudinal furrows in two series. The skin is soft, and in colour of a light brown. It is most commonly found in the livers of sheep which have the disease called the rot, and sometimes in the human liver. Another species is found in the intestines of the bream, and some other fresh water fish. It is of an oval form; but may be extended to some length. One other, the barbata, is white, and found in the intestines of the cuttle fish.
