Abstract

Faustula gangetica (Srivastava, 1935) Yamaguti, 1958 (Plagiorchiida: Faustulidae) from the Hilsa shad, Tenualosa ilisha (Hamilton) (Clupeiformes: Clupeidae), collected in the Arabian Gulf off Iraq between June and October 2014 is redescribed. We include details of the structures within the cirrus sac and provide further basic morphology for this species not previously available. Faustula ilishii (Srivastava, 1935) Yamaguti, 1958 is synonymized with F. gangetica. This is the first report of F. gangetica from the Hilsa shad in the Arabian Gulf.
