AbstractThe progressive increase of bovine fascioliasis in Puerto Rico demands the control of the population of the intermediate snail host. This report deals with preliminary results of the effect of extracts of Solanum mammosum fruits on Lymnaea cubensis snails. The methanolic crude extract shows 95% molluscicidal activity at 25 p/m. One component of the active extract was identified as solasod-5-en-3ß-ol (solasodine).
