Pliovitellaria osteobramensis Gupta and Sinha (1984) a cestode of the family Caryophyllaeidae has been transferred to the genus Paracaryophyllaeus Kulakovaskaja (1961) by Hafeezullah (1993) which is not justified. The authors have reasons to resurrect the status of Pliovitellaria osteobramensis. They also have reasons not to place the said species in the genus Lobulovarium Oros et al. (2012).
