Morphological and life cycle features of the tissue cyst-forming coccidia have been difficult to interpret in devising taxonomic classifications for the various genera. In this study, we amplified the full small subunit rRNA gene sequence of Isospora robini McQuistion and Holmes, 1988, and the partial sequence of Isospora gryphoni Olsen, Gissing, Barta, and Middleton, 1998 by PCR. Both of these species vary from Isospora species of mammals in having Stieda bodies on the sporocysts. The… CONTINUE READING
