A new species of cestode, Proterogynotaenia deblocki (Progynotaeniidae), is described from the Red-capped Plover, Charadrius rujicapillus, from King Island, Tasmania. The new species is characterised by its longer strobila (18-28 mm), large number of proglottids (60-85), number and size of the hooks on the rostellum (six large hooks 33-39 flm long, six small hooks 13-15 flm long) and large number of testes (62-83), which are divided by the uterus into two groups.
