Re: please help identify this!!!


It looks a lot like Schistosoma... but never heard of finding one "on the skin" or in anything other than humans, although skin infections from it are common in humans. It starts its life cycle in fresh water snails, release to water and enter humans through the skin. a trematode flat worm offen called "blood worm". Worth investigating though.
