Morphological Redescription of Opalina undulata Nie 1932 from Fejervarya limnocharis with Molecular Phylogenetic Study of Opalinids (Heterokonta, Opalinea)
TLDR
The results revealed that specimens collected from Diaocha Lake in late August were larger and had more nuclei than those collected from the same site in early May, which gave a hint that body dimension and number of nuclei are not reliable taxonomic parameters for opalinids during their life cycle.

Opalinidae in African Anura. IV. Genus Protoopalina
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in nine families, were checked for opalines in the cloaca, it was suggested that the Bufonidae (genus Bufo) and the Ranidae (in particular the genera Cacosternum, Ptychadena, Rana and Strongylopus) are among the major carriers of Protoopalina in the Afrotropical Regional.
