M. Saxena <p>Although some encouraging studies have been done on the helminth parasites of fresh water fishes of India but there are serious deficiencies in present knowledge with regard to helminth parasites. The present study was carried out in Gomti river, is an important fresh water body in Daliganj at Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. The present study was aimed to investigate the unknown fresh water piscine digenean trematode parasites, on the basis of describtion of morphological as well as morphometrical analysis. Genus <em>Allocreadium</em> Looss, 1900 (Trematoda: Allocreadiidae (Stossich, 1903) Odhner, 1910) is one of the most important digenean trematode parasite with wide geographic distribution range in the world. We have recovered large number of digenean parasites which belong to above genus, during the survey 2010 to 2012 and collected forty trematodes of the genus <em>Allocreadium</em> Looss, 1900, out of these two are new species, another are redescribed to show certain variation, the new parasite was obtain from the intestine of fish <em>Channa punctatus</em> (Bloch., 1785) and <em>Mystus tengara</em> (Ham., 1822).</p> <p><strong>DOI: <a href=""></a></strong></p> 2019-06-29T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
