Additional Information: pp 313-4: "In April, 1938, we visited northeastern Mindanao by way of Surigao. We followed the main road from the capital of the province to the towns of Placer and Mainit, stopping at intervals of 2 to 3 kilometers to search for the snail. We found the mollusk, however, only when we reached the Surigao-Agu- san road in Barrio Tubod, municipality of Mainit. At a place in Sitio Tungao, not far from the entrance to the camp of the Surigao Consolidated Mines, Incorporated, which is in- habited by a few families of rice farmers, Blanfordia quadrasi was present in large numbers on the banks of mountain creeks and irrigation canals and on the dikes of rice paddies. Of the several hundred specimens collected, about 4 per cent harbored the larval stages of the Asiatic blood fluke. The examination of faecal samples submitted by 33 of the adult inhabitants of the place showed a very high infection rate (45.5 per cent). "
