Members of the suborder Eimeriina (phylum Apicomplexa: class Sporozoea: order Eucoccidiorida) have complex 1 or 2 host life cycles that involve endogenous development in the tissues of vertebrates or invertebrates and exogenous development in an oocyst, usually outside the host(s). Because tissue stages are logistically difficult or even impossible to obtain in natural (wild) host-parasite systems, the vast majority (> 98%) of species in this parasite complex are known only from the structure… Expand
Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) in the Primates and the Scandentia
TLDR
Primatologists should be more receptive to multidisciplinary approaches by working with parasitologists to use comparative parasite data that might provide insights into primate sociality and habitat use, and methods to collect and preserve oocysts are described. Expand
Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidea) of the Mammalian Order Insectivora
TLDR
This review focuses on those species within the Eimeriidae because they are among the most prevalent and speciose of all parasite groups, and there is no taxonomic summation currently available for those species that infect insectivores. Expand
A revision of the taxonomy and nomenclature of the Eimeria spp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from rodents in the Tribe Marmotini (Sciuridae)
TLDR
The number of named eimerian species in the Marmotini is reduced from 40 to 26 valid species; the names of those species that were most similar are synonymised and the species for which the original descriptions were inadequate are considered to be species inquirendae. Expand
Observations on Eimeria species of Dasyprocta leporina (Linnaeus, 1758)(Rodentia: Dasyproctidae) from the state of Pará, North Brazil.
TLDR
Although it is at present best to maintain these names, the possibility exists that they were separately given to oocysts of smaller dimensions and larger dimensions of a single parasite, which might establish more definitely the separate specific status of the two parasites. Expand
Emendation of 2 Isospora Species (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Steppe Polecat, Mustela eversmanii Lesson, 1827, in China, to the Genus Cystoisospora (Apicomplexa: Sarcocystidae)
TLDR
The evidence continues to accumulate that Isospora species infecting mammals that have thick walls and do not have a Stieda body on their sporocysts should be transferred to Cystoisospora Frenkel, 1977; thus, the names of these species are emended to reflect that transfer. Expand
A new species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Alectoris barbara (Aves: Phasianidae) from the Canary Islands (Spain)
TLDR
The present study showed that Eimeria barbarae causes severe pathologies in A. barbara chickens, with impact on their health condition, and control strategies needs to be implemented to reduce the loss due to coccidiosis at studied farm. Expand
First molecular data on Eimeria truttae from brown trout (Salmo trutta)
TLDR
This study is the first to characterize E. truttae at the molecular level, thus helping to clarify the phylogenetic relationships between this and other Eimeria species isolated from fish and contributing further to the knowledge about this protozoan parasite. Expand
Studies on coccidian oocysts (Apicomplexa: Eucoccidiorida).
  • B. P. Berto, D. McIntosh, C. Lopes
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Revista brasileira de parasitologia veterinaria = Brazilian journal of veterinary parasitology : Orgao Oficial do Colegio Brasileiro de Parasitologia Veterinaria
  • 2014
TLDR
A critical overview of the methodologies, advantages and limitations of the currently available morphological, morphometrical and molecular biology based approaches that may be utilized for characterization of these important structures of the coccidia are provided. Expand
Isosporan Oocysts in the Faeces of Bank Voles (Myodes glareolus; Arvicolinae, Rodentia): Real Parasites, or Pseudoparasites?
TLDR
The origin of isosporan oocysts found in faeces of bank voles based on morphological analyses, phylogenetic analyses, and experimental infections is revealed. Expand
Reclassification of Eimeria pogonae Walden (2009) as Choleoeimeria pogonae comb. nov. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
The presented paper provides a reclassification of Eimeria pogonae from Pogona vitticeps into the correct genus Choleoeimeria. A description of exogenous and endogenous stages of biliary coccidium isExpand

A plea for improved presentation of type material for coccidia.
TLDR
Those interested in the taxonomy of coccidia are reminded of an already established method for preserving oocysts in resin and the standardization of a photographic procedure through which type specimens of cocCidia oocyst might also be submitted to and maintained in accredited museums are suggested. Expand
The Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) of Testudines, with descriptions of three new species
Three new species of Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) are described from turtles in Texas, U.S.A. Oocysts of Eimeria texana sp.n. were found in 2/8 (25%) Texas cooters, Pseudemys texana, and areExpand
A NEW COCCIDIAN (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) IN THE NORTHERN POCKET GOPHER (THOMOMYS TALPOIDES) AND A COMPARISON OF OOCYST SURVIVAL IN HOSTS FROM RADON-RICH AND RADON-POOR SOILS
TLDR
The elevated radon content of the soil may have had an adverse effect on the sporulation of this coccidian while it still was intracellular within its host. Expand
Coccidia (Apicomplexa), genetic diversity, and environmental unpredictability of four chromosomal species of the subterranean superspecies Spalax ehrenbergi (mole-rat) in Israel.
TLDR
Forty-five mole-rats, representing 4 chromosomal species of the superspecies Spalax ehrenbergi, were collected from 12 localities in Israel in 4 distinct climatic regions and 41 (91%) were infected; 26 (63%) had multiple infections of up to 5 coccidian species, 4 of which are described here as new species. Expand
Critical Comment: Designation and Curatorial Management of Type Host Specimens (Symbiotypes) for New Parasite Species
TLDR
It is recommended that the host from which the type of a new parasite species is described should be designated as a symbiotype, and data on the type (of the parasite) should include the collection locality. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Cyclospora, the human intestinal pathogen, suggests that it is closely related to Eimeria species.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of rDNA sequences reveals that the human-associated Cyclospora is closely related to members of the Eimeria genus, allowing predictions concerning Cyclosporan oocysts host specificity, life cycle, and epidemiology as well as the development of a specific polymerase chain reaction-based diagnostic assay. Expand
External factors and self-regulating mechanisms which may influence the sporulation of oocysts of the rat coccidium, Eimeria nieschulzi.
TLDR
Oocysts of rat coccidium Eimeria nieschulzi were collected daily during the patent period from rats infected with 5000 sporulated oocysts and in all cases where a low percent sporulation was seen, either large numbers of oocystic were packed together or oocyst were associated with much fecal debris, or both.

Guidelines for the preparation of a species description of myxosporean species are proposed and all important diagnostic features are listed and diagrams for size measurements are presented. Expand
Fixing coccidian oocysts is not an adequate solution to the problem of preserving protozoan type material.
TLDR
