A comprehensive icthyoparasotological survey among estuarine and freshwater fishes of West Bengal, India revealed Trichodinella sunderbanensis sp. nov. and Trichodina acuta Lom, 1961 from anExpand
Two new Myxosporidia (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) of the genus Myxobolus Butschli, 1882 from cornea of Clarias batrachus (Linnaeus, 1758) caught from a fish farm in India
Two new species of spores found in the cornea of a freshwater fish were compared with closely related species and found to be ellipsoidal and uniform with symmetrical and smooth spore valves. Expand
Observations on two new species of Myxobolus Butschli, 1882 from minor carps of Tripura, India
During a detailed survey on the protozoan parasites of the minor carps of Tripura, two new species of myxozoan (Myxozoa: Bivalvulida) parasites were encountered on the gill filaments of the host fishes. Expand
Observation on prevalence of ectoparasites in carp fingerlings in two districts of West Bengal
The present study has carried out to find out the prevalence of ectoparasites of carp fingerlings during different months of the year 2008–2009 and found that the highest prevalence of infection has been recorded in ciliophorans and the lowest was in crustacean between the months of December and February.

First records of Trichodina japonica Imai, Miyazaki et Nomura 1991 and Trichodina mutabilis Kazubski et Migala 1968 (Ciliophora, Trichodinidae) from Indian fishes
Taxonomic descriptions of two previously described species for the first time in India are provided based on the light and scanning electron microscopic observations along with new host and locality records and prevalence rates. Expand
On the occurrence of a Haemogregarinae (Apicomplexa) parasite from freshwater turtles of South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India.
It was found that only twenty out of the twenty five turtles (80%) were infected with the parasite and the prevalence rate was higher in larger turtles in comparison to smaller ones, and female turtles had a higher prevalence of infection than males. Expand
