The present paper provides a detailed description of a new species of Monogenea-Dactylogyrus triappendixis, parasitic on gills of tench, Tinca tinca (L.) from the lakes of north-west Poland. The above-mentioned species differs from its congeners, parasitizing the tench, with details of the male copulatory organ and armament of the vagina. It is a frequent parasite of the tench in the water bodies studied, at the temperature of about 18°C.
