A new species, Otodistomum plunketi , is described from the Lord Plunket's Shark Scymnodon plunketi caught in Otago Harbour, New Zealand. This species is compared with Otodistomum veliporum and O. pristiophori , from which it is mainly distinguished by its size, shape, egg-size and undulating caeca.
