A new species of Myxobolus Bütschli, 1882 (Bivalvulida: Myxobolidae) infecting stratum spongiosum of the imperiled sicklefin redhorse, Moxostoma sp. (Cypriniformes: Catostomidae) from the Little Tennessee River, North Carolina, USA.

The sicklefin redhorse, Moxostoma sp. (Cypriniformes: Catostomidae), is an innominate imperiled catostomid endemic to the Hiwassee and Little Tennessee river basins, which has been restricted to a few tributaries of these systems by impoundments. During collections to propagate sicklefin redhorse for reintroduction, a myxozoan, described herein, was observed infecting sicklefin redhorse in the Little Tennessee River Basin, North Carolina. Myxobolus naylori Ksepka et Bullard sp. n. infects the…

Two new species of Myxobolus Bütschli, 1882 (Cnidaria: Bivalvulida: Myxobolidae) infecting the gill of the black redhorse, Moxostoma duquesnei (Lesueur) (Cypriniformes: Catostomidae) in the Little Tennessee River Basin, North Carolina.
TLDR
Two new species of Myxobolus Bütschli, 1882 are described from the gill of the black redhorse and the persistent issue of myxobolid genera paraphyly/polyphyly is discussed, given that these two new species are morphologically congeneric but recovered in distantly related clades.

A NEW SPECIES OF THELOHANELLUS KUDO, 1933 (MYXOZOA: BIVALVULIDA) INFECTING SKELETAL MUSCLE OF BLACKTAIL SHINER, CYPRINELLA VENUSTA GIRARD, 1856 (CYPRINIFORMES: CYPRINIDAE) IN THE CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER BASIN, GEORGIA, USA.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSU rDNA) suggests that the new species shares a recent common ancestor with a clade of cyprinid-infecting species of  Myxobolus  Bütschli, 1882 and  Thelohanellus and are polyphyletic and need revision.
A new species of Myxobolus (Myxozoa: Bivalvulida) infecting the medulla oblongata and nerve cord of brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis in southern Appalachia (New River, NC, USA)
TLDR
Serial histological sections of infected brook trout confirmed that myxospores of the new species are intercellular and infect nerve cord and medulla oblongata only, and did not support the notion that this infection is pathogenic among brook Trout.
Myxobolus ictiobus n. sp. and Myxobolus minutus n. sp. (Cnidaria: Myxobolidae) from the gills of the smallmouth buffalo Ictiobus bubalus Rafinesque (Cypriniformes: Catostomidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of 18S rRNA sequences demonstrated a strong clustering of both isolates with other species of Myxobolus from cypriniform fish.

This report comprises the first taxonomic circumscription and molecular confirmation of M. cerebralis in the southeastern USA south of Virginia, the etiological agent of whirling disease, in trout (Salmonidae) from North Carolina (USA) river basins.
Descriptions and Phylogenetic Systematics of Myxobolus spp. from Cyprinids in Algonquin Park, Ontario
TLDR
It is suggested that spore morphology is better than host specificity and tissue tropism as a species character, as well as for determining evolutionary relationships among the species of Myxobolus examined.
