  • A new coccidian (Apicomplexa: Coccidia), Goussia molnarica n. sp., is described from the gut of the African catfish Clarias gariepinus Bürchell, 1822. Elliptical sporulated oocysts measuring 14-16 x 9-10 microm were found in the feces and in the mucus covering the epithelium in 40.6% of examined catfish specimens. In histological sections, G. molnarica macrogamonts were found, infecting the first part of the intestinal epithelium. Infection prevalence was highest in April and lowest in November… CONTINUE READING
