In a large proportion of Boa constrictor taken in the vicinity of Colima, Mexico, hemogregarines were visible in erythrocytes of the peripheral circulation. One characteristic of a majority of these infections was the marked fusiform or spindle shape of many infected red blood cells. Such cells closely resembled certain avian blood cells parasitized by Leucocytozoon. Developmental stages in the blood, and schizogony in the tissues are described. Schizogony occurs primarily in the endothelial… Expand
