Main Article Content



The present research article deals with the new species of cestode parasite collected from the host Capra hircus at Kaij, Dist. Beed, MS, India. The present new species of cestode parasite is having distinguished features as compared with previously discovered species, hence it is proposed as novel species. The features of the worm are; scolex large, globular, with four suckers; neck very much short; mature proglottids broader than long; testes 20 in number; ovary bilobed, small, roughly rounded; small genital pores are regularly alternate.

Stilesia kaijensis, tapeworm, eucestoda, thysanosomidae.
