In 1924 Woodland described new genus Gangesia. After that Southwell (1913) described the genus Gangesia but the description was not enough. In 1928 Vermagave a detailed explanation of the genus. In his paper, he explained detailed about Gangesiapseudotropii from Silurusgangia and Gangasiaagraensis from Wallagoattu. In 1930, South well described some synonyms and four valid species. From the intestine of fresh water fish Barbusticto, five speciemens of cestode parasites were collected from Aurangabad in the month of February. All parasites were stained with Mayarscarmalum. The measurements are given in millimeters. The new species is described with affinities and differences with some related species.
