Freshwater fishes serve as hosts to a number of digenetic trematodes. A survey on seven species of freshwater fishes from different collection sites of Nanded district during Feb.,2017-Jan.,2019 reveled a total of 7 digenetic trematodes belonging to the genus Azygia (Looss,1899), Orientocredium (Tubangui,1931), Eumasenia (Srivastava, 1951), Isoparorchis (Southwell,1913), Euclinostomum (Travassos,1928), Phyllodistomum (Braun,1899 and) Masenia (Chatterji,1933) from four orders viz. Prosostomata (Odhner,1905), Hemiuroidea; Diplostomida; Plagiorchiida (La Rue,1957) and six families viz. Azygiidae (Odhner,1911), Allocreadidae (Stossich,1903), Maseniidae (Yamaguti,1954); Isoparorchiidae (Travassos,1922), Clinostomatidae and Gorgoderidae (Looss,1899). This survey provides baseline data for the future monitoring of these potentially important parasitic infections of freshwater fishes in this region.
