A new species of nematode (Nematoda: Rhabdochonidae) is reported here from the stomach of a fish, Cyprinion watsoni (Day, 1872) caught at river Bolan, Sibi division, Balochistan. Rhabdochona pakistanica n. sp. is distinguished from all species of the genus Rhabdochona Railliet, 1916 in general and its closest allies (possessing 8 prostomal teeth) mainly in body size, spicules ratio, number and distribution of caudal papillae, shape of the egg and position of vulva and excretory pore.

Phylogenetic relationships of some spirurine nematodes (Nematoda: Chromadorea: Rhabditida: Spirurina) parasitic in fishes inferred from SSU rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
The results indicate geographical isolation has not been the cause of speciation in this parasite group and no coevolution with fish hosts is apparent, and the placement of Cucullanidae at the base of the suborder Spirurina is supported. Expand
