Abstract: The spiny-tailed lizard, Uromastyx aegyptia microlepis, in Abu Dhabi is parasitized by Haemocystidium apigmentada n. sp., and 2 species of Hepatozoon. The elongate gametocytes of H. apigmentada are 13–19 × 6–9 µm, with length × width (LW) 90–133 µm2, and L/W ratio 1.56-3.17. Gametocyte dimensions do not differ by sex. Gametocytes are unpigmented. Hepatozoon species 1 has gamonts with a consistently terminal nucleus, with dimensions of 13–16 × 4.5–7 µm, LW of 58–104 µm2, and L/W ratio… Expand
