A fossilized microscopic, wingless ectoparasitic anoplura and an ectoparasitic larval form of Phylum Acanthocephala have respectively been recorded from the Bagra Formation and the Denwa Formation of the Late Triassic of the Satpura Basin, Madhya Pradesh, India. Both specimens show parasitic habitat, the former parasitising on mammals and the later occuring in the intestinal region of an arthropod. Taxonomy of Phthiraptera has been discussed.
