New species Brachylecithum jehangiri n.sp. (Trematode: Dicrocoellidae) from Pied myna Gracupica contra (Passeriformes: Sturnidae) in District Larkana, Sindh Province-Pakistan

Bakhtawar Soomro and Dr. Jehangir Soomro

A new trematode Brachylecithum jehangiri n.sp is described from the Liver of Pied myna (Gracupica contra) Larkana District, and Sindh, Pakistan. In all, 32 trematodes belonging to the genus Brachylecithum Shtrom, 1940 were collected. Present trematodes differ from their congeners in body shape, size, shape of testes and distribution of uterus. On the basis of such morpho-metrical changes this species Brachylecithum jehangiri may be treated as a new species. This new species is dedicated in the honor of Dr. Jehangir Soomro (Trainee in general surgery Fcps part. 2).
