Spelling error in PDF, missing text in Discussion

Khon Kaen Province in northeast Thailand is known as a hot spot for opisthorchiasis in Southeast Asia
http://plosntds.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pntd.0001906#article1.front1.article-meta1.abstract1.p1

The article contains the following minor errors:

The header for each page of the PDF presently reads "Population Genetic of Opisthorchis viverrini"; it should read "Population Genetics of Opisthorchis viverrini"

In the Discussion section, third paragraph, first sentence, it should read, "O. viverrini sensu lato contains at least three species each
genetically distinct with two morphologically similar (hence cryptic
species) in river wetlands in Thailand and Lao PDR and one
morphologically and biologically distinct isolate species in Sakon Nakhon
and Nakhon Phanom in Songkram River wetland, Thailand
[9,10]."
