Three new coccidian (Apicomplexa, Eimeriidae) species from the sayaca tanager, Thraupis sayaca, from Brazil, are reported in the current study. Isospora sanhaci sp. nov. oocysts are spherical to subspherical, 22.1 × 21.0 μm, with smooth, bilayered wall, ∼1.0 μm. Micropyle, oocyst residuum and polar granule are absent, while Stieda and substieda bodies are(More)

In the New World, the avian order Psittaciformes comprises 142 species, yet to date only 3 (2%) of the species have been examined for coccidia, and from these only four species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 have been described. In this study, a new coccidian species (Protozoa: Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) obtained from the blue-and-yellow macaw Ara ararauna(More)
