Conspicuum murtazae sp.n (Trematode Dicrocoeliidae) from common Myna Acridotheres tristis (Passeriformes: sturnidae) in District Larkana, Sindh Province-Pakistan
A new trematode Conspicuum murtazae sp.n is recorded in gall bladder of Common Myna Acridotheres tristis of District Larkana, Sindh, Pakistan. A total of 5 trematodes were collected. Present trematodes differ from their congeners in body shape and size; presence of shoulder type outgrowths; subterminal oral sucker; wider ventral sucker; presence of testes in parallel to the ventral sucker; pre-equatorial bean-shaped ovary; distribution of vitellaria and post-testicular space. On the basis of such variabilities, this species; Conspicuum murtazae may be treated as a new species. This new species is dedicated in the name of loving Father Mr Ghulam Murtaza Soomro of first author
