Tylocephalum salunkhi n. sp. cestode parasite of Trygon sephen is described on the basis of type material from Ratnagiri (West Coast of Maharashtra, India). The present worms resemble with Tylocephalum marsupium in having all essential morphological characters. Species having scolex oval, rostellum elongated/rounded, presence of four suckers, mature proglottids are broader than long, testes rounded and excretory canal long tube. But the same differ due to number of testes. Hence, it is new species described.
