A cystophorous cercaria obtained from Semisulcospira libertina (Gould) from Tobihino, Nara, Honshu, Japan, was used to experimentally infect a freshwater goby Rhinogobius sp. OR via the copepods Mesocyclops leuckarti (Claus), Thermocyclops hyalinus (Rehberg), and Eucyclops sarrulatus (Fisher). It was shown to grow into Genarchopsis goppo Ozaki, 1925. The parasite was found to occur as a natural infection in the stomach of Rhinogobius sp. OR and Odontobutis obscura (Temminck and Schlegel) from Tobihino.
