A total of 118 Eurasian coots (Fulica atra L) from the Belgrade area were examined and 68.64% were found to be infected with trematodes. Nine species of trematodes were detected: Echinostoma sarcinum, Metorchis xanthosomus Hyptiasmus oculeus, Cyclocoelum mutabile, Cotylurus hebraicus, Notocotylus attenuatus, Notocotylus pacifera, Tanaisia longivitelata and Bilharziella polonica. These results showed the significant role of the Eurasian coot in the epizootiology of trematodosis in other birds, wild and domestic waterfowl, gallinacea and fish.
