Abstract: The patterns of the neuropeptide FMRFamide and serotonin (5-HT) immunoreactive (IR) elements in the nervous system of Aspidogaster conchicola (Aspidogastrea, Aspidogastridae) are described using immunocytochemistry and confocal scanning laser microscopy. Both FMRFamid and 5-HT immunoreactivities occur in the bilobed brain, the three pairs of longitudinal nerve cords and many transverse commissures. The adhesive disc is strongly innervated by FMRFamide-IR nerve fibres. Many 5-HT-IR neurones were observed on the reproductive organs.
