      The extent of damage to the intestine caused by the caryophyllid cestodes,Lytocestus indicus, Djombangia penetrans, and by multiple infections comprising several species of caryophyllids in the cat fish,Clarias batrachus L. is studied.Djombangia penetrans produced large nodules in the intestinal wall.Lytocestus indicus, being less deeply penetrative, caused ulceration of the affected tissue, with hyperplasia of the muscularis in severe cases of infection. Pathogenicity due to multiple infections was minimu, apparently limited to denudation of the mucosal folds.
