The paper presents the morphological characteristics of the P. cuneatus cercariae. Comparative analysis of the dimensional data of P. cuneatus sporocysts and larvae with their parthenitae and larvae described by T. A. Krasnolobova (1961), L. F. Filimonova and V. I. Shalyapina (1980), and E. Arystanov (1986) from B. tentaculata, B. inflata and B.caerulans mollusks was made.
