Schistosoma mansoni and haematobium can be ID'd by their unique spines. S. mansoni has a lateral spine as seen on the path while S. haematobium has a terminal spine (S. japonicum has no spine).

See following for path comparisons (mansoni L, haematobium M, japonicum R)

fatboyslim  Schistosoma haemaTobium: spine is on the Tip ("T" for Tip and haemaTobium) and Schistosoma manSoni has a spine on the Side ("S" for manSoni and Side) +2
