Abstract

Myxobolus Butschli 1882 (Myxozoa, Myxosporea, Bivalvulida, Myxobolidae) is an important parasitic protozoan of freshwater fishes reported from almost all over the world. The severity of infection may lead to mortality of fish host. The present paper deals with the description of a new species of Myxobolus Butschli 1882, Myxobolus lalbaghensis sp. n. from a freshwater food fish Labeo bata (Hamilton, 1822) from the state of West Bengal, India.
