The coccidia (protistan phylum Apicomplexa Levine, 1970) comprise a large group of obligate intracellular parasites commonly found in all classes of vertebrate hosts and in some invertebrates. This review focuses on those species within the Eimeriidae because they are among the most prevalent and speciose of all parasite groups, and there is no taxonomic summation currently available for those species that infect insectivores. All published species descriptions in the genera Cyclospora, Eimeria… Expand
Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) of amphibians of the world
TLDR
All published descriptions of coccidians within the largest family of the phylum, Eimeriidae Minchin 1903, are reviewed and evaluated because there has never been a detailed taxonomic summation for those species that infect amphibians. Expand
Biodiversity of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Conoidasida) in vertebrates: what we know, what we do not know, and what needs to be done.
Over the last two decades my colleagues and I have assembled the literature on a good percentage of most of the coccidians (Conoidasida) known, to date, to parasitise: Amphibia, four major lineagesExpand
Species of Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) in Shrews From Alaska, U.S.A., and Northeastern Siberia, Russia, with Description of Two New Species
TLDR
Fecal samples from 10 species of shrews collected in Alaska and northeastern Siberia were examined for the presence of coccidia and found 5 new host records for E. inyoni, 3 forE. Expand
Two New Eimerians (Apicomplexa) from Insectivorous Mammals in Madagascar
TLDR
Two morphotypes of eimeriid oocysts, representing 2 presumptive new species, were found in 47 infected animals; only 2 afrosoricid hosts (2% of all hosts, 4% of infected hosts) had both oocyst morphotypes. Expand
Host-Parasite Incongruences in Rodent Eimeria Suggest Significant Role of Adaptation Rather than Cophylogeny in Maintenance of Host Specificity
TLDR
This study extends the data set by adding 71 new sequences of coccidia infecting 16 small-mammal genera, mostly rodents, and confirms the previous hypothesis that Eimeria, in its current morphology-based delimitation, is not a monophyletic group. Expand
EIMERIA SPECIES FROM CRYPTOTIS SHREWS (INSECTIVORA: SORICIDAE) WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES
TLDR
Two Eimeria species were found: 1 is consistent with the description of Eimaria whitakeri Upton and McAllister, 1991, and 1 is described in this study as new. Expand
Species of Eimeria and Isospora (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Shrews (Insectivora: Soricidae) in Northwestern Wyoming, U.S.A.
TLDR
The identification of E. longirostris in masked and montane shrews in northwestern Wyoming constitutes a new geographic record for this parasite and the recovery of I. brevicauda from montaneshrews in northwest Wyoming establishes new host and geographic records. Expand
Three new coccidians (Cyclospora, Eimeria) from eastern moles, Scalopus aquaticus (Linnaeus) (Mammalia: Soricomorpha: Talpidae) from Arkansas, USA
TLDR
Three new species of coccidians (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) are described from eastern moles, Scalopus aquaticus (Linnaeus) from Arkansas, and a summary is provided on the cyclosporans and eimerians from North American talpids. Expand
The conceptual basis for a new classification of the coccidia.
TLDR
The immediate outcome of the Controversial Roundtable on 'New classification of coccidia' recommends the establishment of an international group of scientists to meet on a regular basis to stimulate and encourage discussion and debate on current classification schemes for the group of parasitic protozoa known as the eimeriid coccidi.

DESCRIPTIONS OF TWO NEW SPECIES OF EIMERIA (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) AND OF EIMERIA CHINCHILLAE-LIKE OOCYSTS FROM THE PLAINS VIZCACHA LAGOSTOMUS MAXIMUS (DESMAREST, 1817) (RODENTIA: CHINCHILLIDAE) FROM ARGENTINA
TLDR
Of 163 fecal samples collected between March 1997 and February 1999 from the plains vizcacha, 19 (12%) were found to be positive for coccidia, and 3 species from the genus Eimeria are described here as new. Expand

A plea for improved presentation of type material for coccidia.
TLDR
Those interested in the taxonomy of coccidia are reminded of an already established method for preserving oocysts in resin and the standardization of a photographic procedure through which type specimens of cocCidia oocyst might also be submitted to and maintained in accredited museums are suggested.

Thirteen eastern moles, Scalopus aquaticus, collected in West Texas were examined for coccidian oocysts; 11 (85%) were infected and eight (73%) of these had multiple infections representing two orExpand
A guideline for the preparation of species descriptions in the Eimeriidae.
TLDR
This work proposes a specific set of guidelines for the preparation of species descriptions of coccidia based predominently on the structure of the sporulated oocyst, and emphasizes that ancillary data be incorporated whenever possible with the species description. Expand
