Abstract: Patil (2018)1 reported a new species Caryophyllaeid Cestode belonging to the genus Lytocestus (Caryophyllidea: Lytocestidae) which he recovered from Clarias batrachus at Gulbarga (Karnataka) India. The description of the said species L. bharatae appeared in Review Research vol.7(6) on page 1-4. His paper suffers from a number of lacunae. The present authors have pointed out the mistakes, after critically going through the description & observing the sketches provided, and suggested some remedial measures to delineate the existence of the species till then the species has been kept under uncertain status (incertae sedis).
