Abstract

Several species of the genus Caligus parasitic on South Indian fishes have been described by Pillai (Pillai, 1961 ; 1963 and 1964). The species described in this paper was identified as Caligus kuroshio Shiino by Pillai (1963). The present author considers this as a new species. Figures are omitted as Pillai (1963) has given detailed illustrations.
