The literature concerned with the helminthic fauna of Anseriformes is briefly surveyed. A host/parasite list, which includes nine new host records, the descriptions of fifteen species of trematodes which were collected from British freshwater birds during 1956-58 and a key for the separation of the genera of the subfamily Notocotylinae Kossack, 1911, are given. One other species has been described elsewhere (Beverley-Burton (1958)).
