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 and transmission electron microscopy. The thin-walled valves of the pyriform spores are thickened in the lateral sutural and apical regions. Mucous material is(More)
Haemogregarina balli sp. n. is described from the blood and organs of the common snapping turtle Chelydra serpentina serpentina and from the gastric and intestinal ceca of the presumed invertebrate hosts, the leeches Placobdella parasitica and Placobdella ornata. In the peripheral blood of the turtle, male and female gametocytes and immature erythrocytic(More)
Mature gamonts of Haemogregarina magna lie within a type of parasitophorous vacuole (Pv) apparently unique to the haemogregarines. The cytoplasm of infected erythrocytes was separated from the parasite by two Pv membranes. An additional membrane, coated on both sides with electron-dense material, closely invested the gamonts. The apical complex of the(More)
The ultrastructural features of fertilization and sporogony of Eimeria iroquoina are described from the intestinal epithelium of experimentally infected fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas). Intact microgametes were observed in the cytoplasm of macrogametes. Within immature macrogametes the microgamete was segregated from the cytoplasm of the former by the(More)
In 1982, Giardia lamblia cysts were found in the faeces of eight of 97 children (two to five years old) in day-care centres in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. None of the infected children showed any of the classical signs of giardiasis. The survey was repeated in 1983 in the Kitchner-Waterloo area, Ontario. In this survey nine of 147 children were infected with(More)
