Article written by Clarence A. Carlson, Fred P. Meyer, and Calvin R. Fremling (Department of Zoology and Entomology, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa) and presented at the 21st Midwest Wildlife Conference. The article discusses internal parasites of mayflies, specifically flukes found in the intestines, and also describes the authors' experiments with mayflies and catfish, dissection of specimens, and a possible link between parasites in mayflies and catfish. The article is part of a larger study "initiated in 1957 to determine the abundance and ecological significance of the nuisance species [mayflies and caddisflies]." Presented at 21st Midwest Wildlife Conference, Dec. 7-9, 1959, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Part of the Cal R. Fremling Collection.
