Molecular and Morphological Analysis of Myxobolus Spp. of Salmonid Fishes with the Description of a New Myxobolus Species
Abstract While investigating the parasite fauna of wild coho salmon. Oncorhynchus kisutch (Walbaum, 1792), histological examination provided evidence of a new species of Myxobolus (Myxozoa:…
INVOLVEMENT OF MANAYUNKIA SPECIOSA (ANNELIDA: POLYCHAETA: SABELLIDAE) IN THE LIFE CYCLE OF PARVICAPSULA MINIBICORNIS, A MYXOZOAN PARASITE OF PACIFIC SALMON
A coelomic myxozoan infection was detected in freshwater polychaetes, Manayunkia speciosa from the Klamath River, Oregon/California, a site enzootic for the myxozoan parasites Ceratomyxa shasta and…
Approaches for Characterising Myxozoan Species
Application of new approaches to myxozoan classification is expected to facilitate reassessment of existing taxa, discovery of new taxa and further resolution of cryptic species.
Evolutionary origin of Ceratonova shasta and phylogeny of the marine myxosporean lineage.

DNA sequence data from the Alaska M. cerebralis isolates is presented, a brief history of the fish and facility of origin is provided, and implications of different testing methods on asymptomatic fish populations are discussed.
Molecular characterisation of two aurantiactinomyxon (Myxozoa) phenotypes reveals one genotype
Some remarks on the occurrence, host-specificity and validity of Myxobolus rotundus Nemeczek, 1911 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea)
The SSU rRNA gene sequence of M. rotundus myxospores from bream corresponded to Triactinomyxon type 4 actinospores isolated from Tubifex tubifex (Müller) by Hallett et al. (2005), and it is inferred that these are alternate life stages.
Myxozoan Life Cycles: Practical Approaches and Insights
This chapter summarises the collective knowledge of myxozoan life cycles gained through experimental studies and observations, and summarizes attempts to propagate myxozoans in vitro.
Erection of Ceratonova n. gen. (Myxosporea: Ceratomyxidae) to Encompass Freshwater Species C. gasterostea n. sp. from Threespine Stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) and C. shasta n. comb. from…
The proposed erection of genus Ceratonova to contain both intestinal, freshwater species and reassign the salmonid parasite as Ceratomyxa shasta n.
Alternate spore stages of Myxobilatus gasterostei, a myxosporean parasite of three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) and oligochaetes (Nais communis)
The infected oligochaete underwent paratomic fission to produce two daughter worms with parasite stages in their intestinal epithelia, which suggested that M. gasterostei may be sustained and dispersed within the invertebrate host population.
