About Atriophallophorus winterbourni

The trematode Atriophallophorus winterbourni, or Microphallus sp./Microphallus livelyi, is a digenean parasite with a multihost life cycle, native to the lakes of New Zealand. In the beginning of its life cycle, A. winterbourni develops in the gut of a mud snail (Potamopyrgus antipodarum), while the adult worm stage occurs in the gut of waterfowl, where the worms reproduce sexually. A. winterbourni is not known to infect humans and has low virulence in its final bird host.
