Abstract

Dipylidium sarwari n. sp. belonging to order Dilepididea is described from Felis domesticus collected from Badnapur village of Jalna district, M.S. India. The collected cestodes were flattened and preserved in formalin. The preserved worms were stained with Harris haematoxylene, dehydrated in alcohol and mounted in D.P.X. Figures were drawn using camera lucida. The present species has triangular scolex; rostellar hooks in 15 rows and 125 in number; testes medium, oval to round, 145-155 (149) in number; cirrus pouch large, flask shaped; ovary indistinctly bilobed and vitelline gland large, single mass. The present worm has significant morphological variations to accommodate it as a new species.
