The investigations include report of two new worms from marine fishes of Central West Coast of Goa in Arabian Sea. A trematode, Pedunculacetabulum spinatum n.sp. from Chorinemusmandetta and Wenyonia rhincodoni n.sp. from sharks, Rhincodon typus have been described and compared with closer species. The systematics of genus Pedunculacetabulum Yamaguti (Japan J Zool 6:1–112, 1934) has been discussed with detailed evidence of taxometric significance to reinstate this genus. 
Wenyonia sanyali sp.n. (Platyhelminthes: Cestoidea) from Chilloscyllium griseum (Bamboo Shark) in West Bengal, India
The genus Wenyonia Woodland, 1923 contains 7 valid species. In this paper Wenyonia sanyali sp.n. is described and illustrated from the intestine of Chilloscyllium griseum (bamboo shark) from WestExpand
A New Species of Podocerus (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Podoceridae) Associated with the Whale Shark Rhincodon typus
A new species of podocerid amphipod, Podocerus jinbe, is named and described from the gill rakers of the whale shark Rhincodon typus Smith, 1828 from off Yomitan Village, Okinawa Island, Japan. Expand
A New Species of Podocotyloides (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from the Grey Conger Eel, Conger esculentus, in the Caribbean Sea
Podocotyloides brevis, the first report of a member of this genus from the Caribbean Sea and from a host species collected as deep as 200 m, can be separated from the other 13 accepted species in the genus by having a shorter cirrus sac. Expand
Revision of Podocotyloides Yamaguti, 1934 (Digenea: Opecoelidae), resurrection of Pedunculacetabulum Yamaguti, 1934 and the naming of a cryptic opecoelid species
The revised concept of Podocotyloides requires a pedunculate ventral sucker, but also a uterine sphincter prior to the genital atrium, a petalloid cirrus appendage, restriction of the vitelline follicles to the hindbody, and for the excretory vesicle to reach to the level of theventral sucker.

Bioinvasion: a paradigm shift from marine to inland ecosystems
The pathways of transmission of non-native alien species due to long distance migratory habits of Rita rita, man-made alterations including dredging in long stretches of the river bed of Ganges to facilitate ballast water transfer mechanism owing to the commercial ship movements between Haldia and Allahabad, and sudden water chemistry alteration (salinity, hardness, alkalinity) alteration are identified are identified, and remedial measures suggested.

The Life Cycle and Biology of Opecoelus Variabilis, Sp.nov. (Digenea: Opecoelidae).
Opecoelus variabilis, sp. nov., is described from the intestine of 17 species of Australian freshwater fish. The highly variable anatomy of this species highlights the closeness of Opecoelus andExpand
Digeneans of the family Opecoelidae Ozaki, 1925 from the southern Great Barrier Reef, including a new genus and three new species
The following Digenea are described, recorded or figured from Heron Island and Fairfax Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef, off Queensland, northeastern Australia. Opegaster ditrematis fromExpand
study and reorganization of Plagioporus Stafford, 1904 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) and related genera, with special reference to forms from European Atlantic waters
Opecoelidae is restricted to freshwater forms, and Lebouria is considered a synonym of Peracreadium, following the transfer of L. idonea Nicoll, 1909, to the latter genus as P. id onea comb. Expand
Memoirs: On some remarkable new Forms of Caryophyllaeidae from the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, and a Revision of the Families of the Cestodaria
Four remarkable new species of Caryophyllaeidae from the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan are described, three of which are referred to a new genus, Wenyonia, which has the chief characteristics of the sexual apertures in the anterior half of the body, and the elongated uterus. Expand
A contribution to the study of taxa differentiation in cestode taxonomy
The methods discussed may prove helpful in establishing precise interspecific variations as also the variability amongst various higher taxa in cestode taxonomy thus contributing a support in the direction of revision attempts of future workers. Expand
