Author(s): PJ Jithila and PK Prasadan

Abstract: Phyllodistomum punctati n. sp. infecting urinary bladder of the freshwater fish Channa punctata (Bloch) collected from water bodies in the Wayanad region of the Western Ghats during April 2017 to April 2018 is described and illustrated. Phyllodistomum punctati n. sp. is new to the genus and is separated from its congeners on the basis of differences in morphology and morphometry. It is named after the host, C. punctata (Bloch). The present paper also describes the prevalence (7%), intensity (3.71) and mean abundance (0.26) of infection.
