    Abstract

    In the course of my studies on the cestode parasites of the fishes of Madras coast, it was found that the adult cestodes occur mainly among the elasmobranches while the larval cestodes occur mainly among the teleosteans. Only one teleostean fish, viz., Saurida tumbil (Bloch.) was found to harbour two species of adult cestodes belonging to the family Bothriocephalidtv Blanchard. One of the species is of very common occurrence. It belonged to the genus Bothriocephalus Rudolphi. The other species was found only once. It belonged to the genus Oncodiscus Yamaguti, 1934. As both the species are new to science a detailed study of them has been made.
