Nanded (M.S.) during the period of February,2011-January,2013 and identified as Masenia collata Chatterji,1933. The present form comes closer to previously described species Masenia collata Chatterji,1933 in having body ovoid, elongated, pharynx muscular, genital pore pre-acetabular, ovary oval and follicular vitellaria, but differs due to body non spinose, oral sucker triangular, ovary post-testicular and testes pre-ovarian.
