Since the discovery of the amphistome trematode, Indosolenorchis hirudinaceus Crusz, 1951, in the intestinal cecum of a dugong caught in Ceylonese waters, a search was made for more material in the hope of discovering more new parasites in this important host. An excellent opportunity was afforded by the anatomical study of the dugong carried out by one of the authors (V. S. V. F.), and much fresh parasitic material became readily available, greatly facilitating its study by various methods.
