Answers:1. The correct word is "phyla," not "phylums."
2. You need to do your own homework. I would be happy to help with specific questions, but not an entire homework assignment.
Question:Can you give me a name of parasite that belongs to phylum Platyhelminthes(flatworm), that is detrimental to man?
If possible, please tell me the geographical distribution, its usual host or hosts, its life cycle and its economic/public health effects? I need that for my research, thank you very much.
Answers:Trematodes are commonly referred to as flukes. This term can be traced back to the Saxon name for flounder, and refers to the flattened, rhomboidal shape of the worms.
The flukes can be classified into two groups, on the basis of the system which they infect in the vertebrate host. Tissue flukes infect the bile ducts, lungs, or other biological tissues. This group includes the lung fluke, Paragonimus westermani, and the liver flukes, Clonorchis sinensis and Fasciola hepatica. Blood flukes inhabit the blood in some stages of their life cycle. Blood flukes include species of the genus Schistosoma.

Hope I helped a bit :D
Planarium :This planarium was found in my front yard on 5/01/08. I live in South Arkansas (US). I have found 3 others in the yard when I first moved into this house 3 years ago. I spent months on the net till I finally found out what it was. Planaria sp., or flatworm, is a common freshwater, non-parasitic member of the phylum Platyhelminthes, class Turbellaria. It moves by beating cilia on the ventral dermis, allowing it to glide along on a film of mucus. Some move by undulations of the whole body by the contractions of muscles built into the body wall. They exhibit an extraordinary ability to regenerate lost body parts. For example, a Planaria split length wise or crosswise will regenerate into 2 separate individuals. The size ranges from 3 to 12mm, and the body has two eye-spots (also known as ocelli) that can detect the intensity of light. The eye-spots act as photoreceptors and are used to move away from light sources. Planaria have 3 germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm), but lack a body cavity or coelom. They have a single-opening digestive tract.
