Abstract

Examination of the holotype and sole paratype of the digenean Transversohelmins borneoensis Fischthal & Kuntz, 1973 revealed a copulatory apparatus of the ‘elasmocotyle’ type that is characteristic of the family Microphallidae and tribe Basantisiini. The genus is described and figured as far as the specimens allow; it does not match any of the other genera of the tribe (Microphalloides and Queenslandisia). Microphalloides ovariolobatus Ke, 1978 is considered to be a synonym of the species T. borneoensis.
