      The effect of solar eclipse on the emergence of five species of freshwater cercariae from their snail hosts has been studied. Two cercariae showed visible changes from their normal emergence pattern from the snails during eclipse. It appears that changes in atmospheric light and temperature brought about by eclipse altered the behaviour of the snail and this has affected the emergence of cercariae.
