SUMMARY Two new microsporidia, Anostracospora rigaudi n. g., n. sp., and Enterocytospora artemiae n. g., n. sp. infecting the intestinal epithelium of Artemia parthenogenetica Bowen and Sterling, 1978 and Artemia franciscana Kellogg, 1906 in southern France are described. Molecular analyses revealed the two species belong to a clade of microsporidian parasites that preferentially infect the intestinal epithelium of insect and crustacean hosts. These parasites are morphologically distinguishable… 
Isolation of the Parasite Enterocytospora artemiae From Chinese Grass Shrimp (Palaemonetes sinensis)—First Report in Asia
TLDR
Based on this parasite’s life cycle characteristics, morphology, and small subunit ribosomal DNA sequence, the parasite described here is likely E. artemiae, which has previously only been described in Europe and North America, and is the first report of E.Artemiae both in Asia and economically important shrimp.
First case of hepatopancreatic necrosis disease in pond-reared Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, associated with microsporidian.
TLDR
This study reported the first case of widespread infections of H. eriocheir associated with HPND found in the pond-reared Chinese mitten crab, E. sinensis, which is a very important economic crustacean species in China.
Development of a Quantitative PCR Method for Specific and Quantitative Detection of Enterocytospora artemiae, a Microsporidian Parasite of Chinese Grass Shrimp (Palaemonetes sinensis)
TLDR
In this study, a pair of specific primers based on the sequence of the ribosomal protein S9 gene (RPS9) are designed to establish and optimize a SYBR Green I real-time fluorescent quantitative PCR detection method for EAM.
Molecular surveillance of Vittaforma-like microsporidia by a small-volume procedure in drinking water source in Taiwan: evidence for diverse and emergent pathogens
TLDR
Water samples from rivers and reservoirs around Taiwan in two seasons were analyzed to explore the presence of this pathogen in natural aquatic environments and identify a variety of Vittaforma-like microsporidia with weak sequence similarity, indicating high diversity of microsportidia in aquatic environments.
Natural occurrence of microsporidia infecting Lepidoptera in Bulgaria
TLDR
The prevalence of all isolates in their hosts was low and ranged from 1.0% to 5.3%.

SSU rDNA sequence analysis showed attribution of the new species to a cluster of microsporidia infecting insects, microsrustaceans, vertebrates, vertebrate and ciliates nested within the clade IV sensu Vossbrinck, Debrunner-Voss Brinck (2005).
Desmozoon lepeophtherii n. gen., n. sp., (Microsporidia: Enterocytozoonidae) infecting the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda: Caligidae)
TLDR
Due to the novelty of the copepod host, the ultrastructural findings and the robust nature of the phylogenetic analyses, a new genus should be created within the Enterocytozoonide; Desmozoon lepeophtherii n.
