Gephyrolina paragonoporaKlaus Rohde
The species infects the body cavity of siluroid fishes in India. It has so far been recovered from Mystus (=Macrones) aor and M. seenghala (family Bagridae), and from Bagarius yarrelli (family Sisoridae) in India. It reaches a length of 280 mm and a width of 5 mm. Young eggs possess a stalk at one pole like those of Amphilina, and the larval hooks differ in shape somewhat from those of other amphilinids.
