The new form differs from all known species of genus with scolex distinctly marked off from strobila, oval rostellum, mature proglottids broader than long, testes three in number, elongated cirrus pouch, vas deference thin, straight, ovary distinctly bilobed, vitelline gland post ovarian, genital pore unilateral.
