ON THE BUCEPHALID METACERCARIA BUCEPHALOPSIS LINGUIFORMIS N. SP., FROM INDIAN FRESH-WATER FISHES ESOMUS DANRICUS AND NEMACHILUS BOTIA by K. K. CHAKRABARTI* and S. C. BAUGH (Department of Zoology, University of Lucknow, Lucknow, India) I. INTRODUCTION During the course of an investigation on the metacercarial infections of the fishes found in the "Nishatganj Bundha", a dam of the river Gomti located about eight kilometres from the city of Lucknow, a new encysted bucephalid metacercaria of the genus Bucephalopsis Diesing, 1855 was found infesting Esomus danricus (Hamilton) and Nemachilus botia (Hamilton) which are rather uncommon among the fishes of the dam site. II. MATERIALS AND METHODS S Cysts from the infected fishes were transferred either to normal saline or to Tyrode's and Locke-Lewis' solutions. A camel-hair brush or a pipette was used for handling the metacercarial cysts. Metacercariae were excysted in several ways viz., (a) by applying light pressure on the cover-glass, (b) by the use of dissecting needles and (c) by the use of artificial digests prepared as suggested by KOMIY A & TAJIMI (1941) and by HOFFMAN (1960). Live specimens were maintained in vitro (SILVERMAN, 1965) using Tyrode's or Locke-Lewis' solution. They were stained by vital stains viz.,
