Light and electron microscopic studies of Myxobolus stomum n. sp. (Myxosporea: Myxobolidae) infecting the blackspotted grunt Plectorhynicus gaterinus (Forsskal, 1775) in the Red Sea, Egypt
The ultrastructure of the plasmodial wall and sporogenesis of the present species followed the usual pattern valid for most studied myxosporean species.
Five new myxosporean species (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) infecting the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in Bahr Shebin, Nile Tributary, Nile Delta, Egypt
Five new myxosporean species belonging to three different genera were described from the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in Bahr Shebin, Nile Tributary, Nile Delta, Egypt. These species are:
Zschokkella helmii n. sp. (Myxozoa: Myxosporea), a new parasite of marbled spinefoot Siganus rivulatus (Forsskal 1775), Red Sea, Egypt: light and transmission electron microscopy
Zschokkella helmii n. sp., a new parasite of Siganus rivulatus from the Red Sea, Egypt, was described using light and transmission electron microscopy. However, the infection was severe; single
A new microsporidian parasite, Heterosporis saurida n. sp. (Microsporidia) infecting the lizardfish, Saurida undosquamis from the Arabian Gulf, Saudi Arabia: ultrastructure and phylogeny
The ultrastructural characteristics and phylogenetic analyses support the recognition of a new species of microsporidian, herein named Heterosporis saurida n.
Prevalence of coccidia (Eimeria spp.) infection in domestic rabbits, Oryctolagus cuniculus, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The prevalence of coccidia infection among domestic rabbits in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was investigated for one year and ten species of Eimeria were identified in 100 fecal samples, with mixed infection with three different species occurring most frequently.
Ultrastructure and phylogeny of Glugea nagelia sp. n. (Microsporidia: Glugeidae), infecting the intestinal wall of the yellowfin hind, Cephalopholis hemistiktos (Actinopterygii: Serranidae), from the
A new microsporidian species of the genus Glugea Thélohan, 1891 parasitising the marine teleost fish Cephalopholis hemistiktos Rüppell, collected from the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia, is described on the
Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gall bladder of the horned viper Cerastes gasperettii (Serpentes: Viperidae) in Saudi Arabia.
It is believed that this coccidium from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers is best classified as a member of Choleoeimeria Paperna et Landsberg, 1989, because of its diagnostic features, sporocysts with a suture and composed of two plates and endogenous development limited to the biliary epithelium.
In Vitro Scolicidal Effects of Salvadora persica Root Extract against Protoscolices of Echinococcus granulosus
It is confirmed for the first time that the ethanolic extract of S. persica has high scolicidal power in vitro and in vivo effect of this material remains to be studied for treatment of echinococcosis in humans and herbivorous animals.
Redescription of Haemogregarina garnhami (Apicomplexa: Adeleorina) from the blood of Psammophis schokari (Serpentes: Colubridae) as Hepatozoon garnhami n. comb. based on molecular, morphometric and
It can be concluded for the first time that the present species is conspecific with Haemogregarina garnhami, and is the first report of Hepatozoon infection in snakes from Saudi Arabia.
