Recent Advances in Our Knowledge of the Myxozoa
TLDR
It is indicated that the Myxozoa are closely related to Cnidaria, and marine taxa at the genus level branch separately from genera that usually infect freshwater fishes; taxa cluster more by development and tissue location than by spore morphology. Expand
The demise of a phylum of protists: phylogeny of Myxozoa and other parasitic cnidaria.
TLDR
Reassessment of myxozoans as metazoans reveals terminal differentiation, typical metazoan cellular junctions, and collagen production, and it is recommended that the group as a whole be removed from all protistan classifications and placed in a more comprehensive cnidarian system. Expand
Ultrastructural and cytochemical observations on sporogenesis of Myxobolus sp. (Myxosporida: Myxobolidae) from the common shiner Notropis cornutus.
The structure and cytochemistry of spores of Myxobolus sp. from plasmodia which occur in the gill filaments of the common shiner Notropis cornutus were studied by light microscopy and by scanning andExpand
Actinosporean stages of myxozoan parasites of oligochaetes from Lake Sasajewun, Algonquin Park, Ontario: new forms of echinactinomyxon, neoactinomyxum, aurantiactinomyxon, guyenotia, synactinomyxon
Six forms (5 of which are new) of echinactinomyxon and 5 new forms of the collective groups neoactinomyxum, aurantiactinomyxon, guyenotia, synactinomyxon, and antonactinomyxon of oligochaetes in LakeExpand
BLOOD PARASITES OF AMPHIBIANS FROM ALGONQUIN PARK, ONTARIO
TLDR
The presence of Trypanosoma ranarum in B. americanus appeared to coincide with their attainment of sexual maturity, suggesting that longer exposure to water makes these species more likely to acquire blood parasites. Expand
The life history, ultrastructure, and experimental transmission of Hepatozoon catesbianae n. comb., an apicomplexan parasite of the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana and the mosquito, Culex territans in
TLDR
The haemogregarine parasite of bullfrogs was designated as a new combination, Hepatozoon catesbianae, based on data presented in this study and the earlier description by Stebbins in 1903. Expand
Actinosporean stages of myxozoan parasites of oligochaetes from Lake Sasajewun, Algonquin Park, Ontario: new forms of triactinomyxon and raabeia.
Eight forms of triactinomyxon and 6 forms of raabeia of oligochaetes from Lake Sasajewun, Algonquin Park are described. Of the 8 forms of triactinomyxon, 2 designated as triactinomyxon 'B' and 'E'Expand
THE BLOOD PARASITES OF ANURANS FROM COSTA RICA WITH REFLECTIONS ON THE TAXONOMY OF THEIR TRYPANOSOMES
  • S. Desser

  • The Journal of parasitology
  • 1 February 2001
TLDR
Rana vaillanti, the most aquatic species of frog, harbored the most species of parasites, and the criteria described herein should be applied when naming new species of anuran trypanosomes. Expand
The oligochaetes and their actinosporean parasites in Lake Sasajewun, Algonquin Park, Ontario.
TLDR
Waterborne spores of different actinosporean forms showed distinct temporal patterns and the presence of waterborne spores peaked from late June to August when water temperatures ranged from 18 to 24 C and coincided with the feeding and growing season of larval fish. Expand
