A new nematode,Paracapillaria xenentodoni n. sp. is described based on light microscope studies of the worms recovered from the migratory fishXenentodon cancila (Hamilton) from the Hooghly estuary at Kalyani, West Bengal, India. The worms are characterised by relatively large body size, the structure of the male caudal extremity (the presence of two wide, lobe-like, dorso-lateral caudal projections), the large size of the spicule (0.236–0.374 mm), the transversely wrinkled but non-spiny… Expand

TLDR
A detailed study of several male and female specimens recovered from the in- testine of the marine fish, Raja radiata, collected from the South Coast of the Indian Ocean, India, revealed that they do not conform to any known species of the genus and appear to constitute a new species, and are reported as such.
