Present paper deals with the study of spermatogenesis of a new digenetic trematode Emoleptalea dollfusi, Srivastava,1960. The helminthes parasites were collected from the intestine of Saccobranchus fossilis of the family Cephalogonimidae Nicoll,1915 at the locality Goghar, Rewa (M.P.). A few of the parasites were flattened on a clean slide under the slight pressure of a cover glass and fixed in alcoholic Bouin,s fluid for 12 hours. Stains like Gower's Carmine, Mayer's Paracarmine and Haemalum were used for the preparation of whole mounts for identification and the study of testes and process of spermatogenesis in this species.
