    • Abstract

       

      Redescription ofRaillietina (Raillietina) kordofanensis, Meggitt and Subramanian (1927) from a new host, viz.,Columba livia domestica is made. The specimens closely resemble the species described by Meggitt and Subramanian (1927) except in having a longer cirrus pouch and smaller rostellar hooks. The teratological aberrations, viz., the presence of two cirrus pouches in the same proglottid with internal seminal vesicle are also reported. Taxonometry in biostatistical terms reveal the closeness of two species.
