[Extract] The family Cortrematidae Yamaguti, 1958 contains only a single genus, Cortrema Tang, 1951, from the digestive tract of passerine birds in the Palaearctic region and Africa. In Cortrema, a ventral sucker is present but a cirrus-sac is not. The genital pore is close to the posterior end of the body near the excretory pore. Laurer's canal is extremely long, extending to at least midway between the ventral sucker and the posterior end of the body. This suite of characters separates the family from other members of the Gorgoderoidea Looss, 1899.
