The body length/width ratio of the slender, medium and stumpy forms ranges 14·5–17·3, 7·5–12·0 and 3·5–5·6 respectively. Kinetoplast subterminal; vacuoles absent in the slender forms and present in the other two forms.T. qadrii n. sp. is monomorphic measuring 30·4–48·2µm in length including free flagellum and 1·6–3·2µm in width. Both the ends are pointed; granules absent; kinetoplast subterminal.
