Abstract

Saurokoilophilia kinsellai n. gen., n. sp. from the stomach of the skink Papuascincus stanleyanus (Scincidae) from Papua New Guinea is described and illustrated. The presence of an ecsoma, a single compact vitellarium, and the absence of anteriorly united excretory ducts allow the erection of a new subfamily, Saurokoilophiliinae, for the new genus. Saurokoilophilia kinsellai n. sp. is only the second trematode described from lizards collected in Papua New Guinea.
