Gnathostoma malaysiae sp. n. was found in the stomach wall of rats, Rattus surifer and Rattus rattus tiomanicus trapped in a mountainous area of Tioman Island, Pahang State, Malaysia. The new species looks like Gnathostoma doloresi Tubangui, 1925, but is easily distinguished from this species by the shape of cuticular spines, the size of fertilized eggs, and the features of the caudal pedunculate papillae of the male.
