Diphterostomum betencourti is reported from the catshark Scyliorhinus canicula from the Solent off the Isle of Wight in southern England. This is the first record of this parasite in British waters. The species is partly redescribed from unflattened and flattened material. These specimens clearly show a distinct uterine seminal receptacle, a most usual feature for members of the family Zoogonidae.
