Temnocephala lamothei is a species of flatworm in the family Temnocephalidae.

The specific name lamothei is in honor of Mexican helminthologist Dr. Marcos Rafael Lamothe-Argumedo.[1]

This species was collected in 2005 in Misiones Province, Argentina and described in 2008 as a commensal in the mantle cavity of freshwater snail Pomella megastoma.[1]
