Fejervarya cancrivora is often used as raw material for food and export commodities. In 2014, it was recorded that Karawang Regency was the largest producer of frog’s legs meat in West Java. Research on trematode worms of F. cancrivora from Karawang Regency was conducted to find out the diversity of trematodes worms and its infection patterns. The observation was carried out on 120 frogs. The lungs, stomach, intestine, and caecum were examined for trematodes. The results showed that the F. cancrivora infected by four species of trematodes i.e., Glypthelmins sp., Pleurogenoides sp., Haematoloechus sp., and Diplodiscus sp. with a prevalence of 25.8%, 18.3%, 35.8%, and 23.3%, respectively, and parasite index 1 -25, 1-268, 1-19, and 1-23 individual parasite in each host, respectively.
