During a survey on the septate gregarine parasite of Aphids a species of septate gregarines (Protozoa: Sporozoa), Hirmocystis theodoridesi was isolated from the mid gut of Aphis fabae. Distinctive characteristics of Hirmocystis theodoridesi and its taxonomic position have been redescribed. The prevalence of the infection was 25 out of 60 (33.3 %).
