An encysted bucephalid metacercaria Bucephalopsis linguiformis n. sp. from the somatic musculature and body cavities of fishes Esomus danricus and Nemachilus botia collected from the "Nishatganj Bundha", a dam of the river Gomti situated near the city of Lucknow, is described. Only 5 specimens of E. danricus and 2 of N. botia were found infected. The new species is chiefly characterized by the spinose body, the four apical gland-cells on each side which are arranged in tandem pairs-the gland-cells of the anterior pair being larger than those of the posterior pair, the postequatorial position of mouth, the obliquely tandem and postequatorial testes and equatorial ovary. The cirrus sac is confined to the posterior third of the body. The excretory bladder extends to the apical sucker. The flame cell formula is 2 (2 + 2) + 2(2+2)=16. The relationships of B. linguiformis with allied species are discussed.
