AbstractThe work specifies the current distribution of Schistosoma turkestanicum Skrjabin, 1913 causing schistosomiasis in the animals of Uzbekistan. Populations of mature blood flukes were recorded in 14 mammal species. Three of these species – Hare, Goitered Gazelle and Bukhara Red Deer – were for the first time identified as definitive hosts for the blood flukes in question. Persistent foci of schistosomiasis of animals were identified in the Aral Sea area. Recorded prevalence: cattle – 55.5%, sheep – 33.0%, goats – 15.5%, camels – 10.2% and horses – 21.5%.
