  • We provide new data on morphology, host specificity, life history, pathology and phylogeny of the coccidian genus Goussia in European anurans. Divergence in the SSU rDNA sequences (3-4%) of three Goussia isolates from three anuran hosts suggests that the isolates represent three distinct species. The isolate from Pelophylax kl. esculentus was determined as Goussia neglecta. The isolates from Rana dalmatina and Rana temporaria are considered conspecific and are, on the basis of host specificity… CONTINUE READING
