Undescribed species of tetrasporocystic coccidia was found in the gallbladder of Scincus scincus scincus from South Sinai, Egypt. According to the oocyst morphology and site of infection, the coccidium was assigned to genus Choleoeimeria and described as Choleoeimeria saqanqouri sp.n. The prevalence of the infection was 22.9% (30/131). Oocysts were ellipsoidal and measured 34.8 x 23.4 μm. Sporocysts were dizoic and irregular in shape. The endogenous development was confined to the gallbladder… 
Choleoeimeria bunopusi sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Gall Bladder of the Tuberculated Gecko Bunopus tuberculatus (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Saudi Arabia
Choleoeimeria bunopusi sp. n. is described from the gall bladder of the tuberculated gecko Bunopus tuberculatus in Saudi Arabia. The prevalence of infection was 13.3% (2/15). Oocysts were ellipsoidal
A New Choleoeimeria Species (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Gall Bladder of Scincus mitranus (Reptilia: Scincidae) In Saudi Arabia
Abstract Choleoeimeria mitranusensis n. sp. is described from the gall bladder of the lizard Scincus mitranus in Saudi Arabia. The prevalence of the infection was 20% (6/30). Oocysts were ellipsoidal
A new species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the lizard, Scincus hemprichii (Sauria: Scincidae).
Four out of twenty (20%) specimens of the lizard Scincus hemprichii Wiegmann, collected in Saudi Arabia were infected with a previously undescribed species of Choleoeimeria, causing infected cells to be displaced from the epithelium layer towards lumen.
Choleoeimeriaghaffari n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gallbladder of Eryx jayakari Boulenger (Serpentes: Boidae) in Saudi Arabia
Based on oöcyst morphology and the site of endogenous development (epithelium of the gallbladder and bile ducts) the new eimeriid coccidian was placed in the genus Choleoeimeria Paperna & Landsberg, 1989.
Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gall bladder of the horned viper Cerastes gasperettii (Serpentes: Viperidae) in Saudi Arabia.
It is believed that this coccidium from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers is best classified as a member of Choleoeimeria Paperna et Landsberg, 1989, because of its diagnostic features, sporocysts with a suture and composed of two plates and endogenous development limited to the biliary epithelium.
Reclassification of Eimeria schmidti Al-Yousif et al. (1997) (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) with Description of its Endogenous Stages
According to the oocyst morphology, site of infection and endogenous development, the coccidium was transferred to genus Choleoeimeria and renamed CholeOEimeria schmidti.
A New Species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Meller's Chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae)
A captive specimen of Meller's chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Gray), originally from Tanzania and housed at the Oklahoma City Zoological Park Herpetarium, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, was found to be passing an undescribed species of Choleoeimeria in its feces, representing the second coccidian documented from this lizard.
Four new species of coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Owen Stanley Skinks, Papuascincus stanleyanus (Sauria: Scincidae), from Papua New Guinea.
To the knowledge, these represent the only coccidians ever described from P. stanleyanus and are described here as new.
Redescription of Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 as Choleoeimeria zarudnyi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
Based on the morphological features of the exogenous stages and the endogenous development of the present parasite, its generic affiliation is revised and Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 is transferred to the genus Choleoeimeria.
