Crynodeb

After publication of this article [1], the authors noticed a reporting error in the results section. The species described in the first paragraph of the results sub-section ‘Environmental DNA detected the presence of schistosomes from the natural environment’ has been reported asB. globosus, but this should readB.pfeifferi instead. The first paragraph of the ‘Environmental DNA detected the presence of schistosomes from the natural environment’ sub-section has now been updated to: “Four out of the eight screened sites were positive forS.mansoni eDNA (sites we named A, B, C and D; Tables 5 & 6, Fig 2). At two of these eDNA positive locations, infectedB.pfeifferi gastropods were present (sites A and B), while at two of the locationsB.pfeifferi was not found (sites C and D; Table 5). Of the four locations that were eDNA negative, only one hadB.pfeifferi present, and these snails were determined to be infected through PCR analysis of tissue DNA (Table 5, Fig 2). Thus, the eDNA assay was congruent with the PCR tests for infected snails in 5/8 (62.5%) of locations. Notably, the estimated numbers ofS.mansoni copies resolved in most samples were below the defined LOQ of 100 copies/μl, the LODI of 41.68 copies/μl and the LODIII of 10.84 copies/μl.”.
