Abstract: An attempt has therefore been made to project the trematode parasite of one group of class Reptilia that is lacertilians of Chapra. In present paper attempt has been made to study some trematode parasite of lacertilians of class- Reptilia of vertebrates found in and around Chapra and to present some taxonomical aspect based on statistical approach. A few new species have also been reported to fix up their taxonomical status. Statistical approach has also been followed in addition to the typological and qualitative approach. Ten trematodes were recovered from gall bladder of wall lizard (Hemidactylus flaviviridis) found from the suburbs of Chapra. All the flukes were very active, yellowish in colour and very thick. On comparison these were found to belong to genus Paradistomoides Travassos, 1944. According to Yamaguti (1958, 1971), that trematodes under investigation appears to be close to Pardistomoides orientalis. A few variations are of course present, but are supposed to be variations within the species.
