The zoospores are disseminated by rain splash to grape tissues where they swim to the vicinity of stomata and encyst .
Once the cercaria enters the second intermediate host, it sheds its tail and becomes a metacercaria, which is little more than a miniature, but sexually immature, adult, that may, or may not, encyst .
The grubs migrate through the tissue to the loin area where they encyst , cut a breathing hole in the skin of the animal on the back-line and complete their larval development.
Second, it can encyst inside a daughter sporocyst as a metacercariae, be voided with the sporocyst, and then be consumed by the benthic-feeding definitive host, rosyside dace.
tapeworms are notorious in their ability to encyst in a great variety of hosts
The parasites encyst and lay their fertilized eggs within the lung of the host, to be passed enterically or via bronchial secretions.
They bore through the intestinal wall into a blood vessel and are carded to muscle tissue where they encyst , or form a protective capsule.
While encysted , the glochidia will metamorphose, allowing the organs to develop more like an adult's organs.
Most often encystment occurs in the costoparietal regions, usually along the posterior parietal pleural surface on the right side.
Depending on environmental conditions, it can shift from viviparous to oviparous reproduction, with production of encysted and dehydrated embryos.
