Abstract
Since the publication of the description of Paramphistomum sukari Dinnik, 1954, from cattle in the vicinity of Nairobi, Kenya, a survey has shown that this paramphistome is widespread in Kenya, where P. sukari has been found in the reticulum of native cattle in the Kikuyu and Masai Reserves and Northern Frontier Province and also in grade cattle on European farms. This species also occurs in Uganda, where it was recovered from the reticulum of cattle in Ankole and in cattle from Karamoja, when the latter were slaughtered and examined at the Municipal Abattoir in Kampala, Uganda.
