Thirteen of 51 (25.5%) Jefferson salamanders, Ambystoma jeffersonianum, and 4 of 69 (5.8%) small-mouthed salamanders, Ambystoma texanum, from east-central Illinois were found to be infected with metacercariae of Clinostomum marginatum; I of 72 (1.4%) spotted salamanders, Ambystoma maculatum from north-central Arkansas was found to be infected with metacercariae of Clinostomum attenuatum. We provide a new host record for C. attenuatum and 2 new host records and a new locality record for metacercariae of C. marginatum. In addition, a list of the amphibian hosts of metacercariae of Clinostomum spp. is provided.
