Abstract
Strongyluris dracocola n. sp. from the intestine of Lophognathus temporalis collected in Papua New Guinea is described and illustrated. Strongyluris dracocola n. sp. represents the 32nd species assigned to the genus and the sixth from the Australo-Papuan region. It can be easily separated from the other Australo-Papuan species because it is the only species to have an unpaired median papilla adjacent to the sucker.
