This study records for the first time in Colombia the presence of trematode Typhlocoelum cucumerinum (Rudolphi, 1809) in domestic Muscovy ducks (Cairina moschata domestica). A total of 210 trematodes were collected from 42 adult individuals, 26 males and 16 females. Parasitic frequency was 57.14% and mean parasitic intensity was 8.75 parasites per animal. Results show the presence of trematodes in aquatic ecosystems in the Department of Córdoba (Colombia).
