A survey of helminths in house lizard (Hemidactylus flaviviridis) from different parts of Aizawl district of Mizoram was carried out. Interestingly one house lizard was found infected with 8 numbers of one particular species of trematode among 50 lizards examined. Light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed that the recovered parasite belongs to Postorchigenes sp. This paper presented the detail surface morphology of the Postorchigenes sp. of lizard. So far, this is the first report of such trematode from this part of India.
