|Description:||Life cycles of most digenean species remain unknown, and this fully applies to members of family Notocotylidae. Identification of both adults and cercariae of this family is complicated. In current study we sampled notocotylids from Hydrobia ventrosa mudsnails and from mallard Anas platyrhynchos at the White Sea for both morphological and molecular (ITS1, partial 28S rRNA gene) investigations. Three kinds of notocotylid cercariae were discovered, belonging to three different morphotypes, as described by Rothschild: Monostomi, Imbricata and Yenchingensis. Molecular data confirm that these cercariae belong to three different species. Comparing them to identified specimens from a bird we conclude that these cercariae represent Paramonostomum alveatum, P. anatis and Notocotylus cf. atlanticus species. Of these three only P. alveatum has been previously reported from this region. Our results are important for understanding the true diversity of notocotylids. They also support the idea that combining morphological and molecular approaches for elucidating digenean life cycles is quite efficient.|
