In the present study, out of 200, 120 (60 %) Plectropomus maculates fish were found to be naturally infected with Kudoa sp. The infection was intensive and appeared as clusters of ovoid to ellipsoidal plasmodia being restricted to the cardiac muscles. More than 100 plasmodia were counted per infected heart and measured 1.53 ± 0.2 (1.2–2.5) × 0.65 ± 0.2 (0.63–0.80) mm. On the basis of spore morphology, the parasite was identified as Kudoa sp. The spore measures 4.8 ± 0.3 (4.7–6.8) × 4.0 ± 0.3 (4… Expand
