Oocyst morphology and endogenous developmental stages are described for Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers, Cerastes gasperettii Leviton and Anderson, in Saudi Arabia. Sporulated oocysts are ellipsoidal, 23 x 15 (22-25 x 14-17) microm, length/width ratio (L/W) 1.5 (1.4-1.6), each with 4 sporocysts (Eimeria-like), but lack a micropyle, polar granules and oocysts residuum. Sporocysts are ellipsoidal, 8 x 5 (7-9 x 5-) microm, L/W 1.5 (1.4-1.6), and Stieda…

A new species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) parasitic in the rough-tailed gecko Cyrtopodion scabrum (Sauria: Gekkonidae) in Egypt
TLDR
Based on the morphological features of the oocysts and the endogenous development in the gallbladder epithelium, this biliary coccidium is identified to be a new species in the genus Choleoeimeria.
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 is

EIMERIA CASCABELI SP. N. (EIMERIIDAE, SPOROZOA) FROM RATTLESNAKES, WITH A REVIEW OF THE SPECIES OF EIMERIA FROM SNAKES*
TLDR
Two schizogonous gen- erations and gametocytes were found in the epithelial cells lining the gall bladder and extrahepatic bile ducts and attempts to transfer this parasite to sidewinders, Crotalus cerastes laterorepens (Hallowell), and garter snakes were unsuccessful.
