A new histozoic species of the genus Myxobilatus Davis, 1944 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea: Bivalvulida), Myxobilatus anteronippus sp. n., is described from pectoral, dorsal and tail fins and operculum of an estuarine fish Taenioides cirratus (Blyth). The present species is unique in having polar capsules with unequal dimensions with a nipple or knob like structure present at the anterior extremity of each polar capsule, the shell valves are devoid of any striations. A synopsis of Indian species of the genus Myxobilatus Davis, 1944 including a total of six species is also provided.
