    A new nematode species, Philometra terapontis n. sp. (Philometridae), is described from specimens found in the ovary of Terapon jarbua (Forsskål) (Terapontidae, Perciformes) from the Bay of Bengal. The new species differs from most other gonad-infecting Philometra spp. in the length of spicules, a gubernaculum with dorsal lamella-like structures and a distinct protuberance on its distal end, and a U-shaped, dorsally uninterrupted caudal mound in the male. From a few congeneric, gonad-infecting species with unknown males, it can be distinguished by some morphological and biometrical features found in gravid female (body length, length of first-stage larvae or oesophagus, structure of caudal end) and by the host type (fish family) and geographical distribution. Philometra terapontis is the first philometrid species reported from a fish belonging to the family Terapontidae. A key to gonad-infecting species of Philometra parasitizing marine and brackish-water fishes is provided.
