A new Isospora (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) species is described from an Australian raven (Corvus coronoides) in Western Australia. Sporulated oocysts (n = 21) are ovoid, 21.2 (18.4–23.9) μm in length and 18.8 (16.9–20.6) μm in width, with a shape index of 1.13. The bi-layered oocyst wall is smooth and colourless, 1.2 μm thick. A polar granule and oocyst residuum is present, but the micropyle is absent. The sporocysts are ovoid-shaped, 16.3 (13.7–18.9) × 10.7 (8.4–12.9) μm, with a shape index… 
Distribution, redescription, and molecular identification of Isospora striata McQuistion et al. 1997 (Eimeriidae), from woodcreepers (Dendrocolaptidae) in South America.
The morphological study and the 100% similarity in sequencing of the COI gene between samples of different dendrocolaptid species confirmed the identification of a single species, supporting the Identification of I. striata in the Brazilian Atlantic forest and consequently the wide distribution of this coccidian species in the Neotropical Region.
Detection and characterization of the Isospora lunaris infection from different finch hosts in southern Iran
Based on the morphology, the oocysts of Isospora lunaris were identified in all sampled bird types; however, the molecular method revealed the isolates had considerable similarities with some of isosporoid protozoan -like organisms named as Atoxoplasma.


A new species of Isospora Schneider, 1881 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the white-throated magpie jay Calocitta formosa (Passeriformes: Corvidae) from Costa Rica
A new species of isosporan (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) is reported from two magpie jays Calocitta formosa (Swainson) (Passeriformes: Corvidae) from Costa Rica. Oöcysts of Isospora calocitta n. sp. are
Morphological and molecular characterisation of Isospora butcherae n. sp. in a silvereye (Zosterops lateralis) (Latham, 1801)
The oocysts from this isolate are morphologically different from those of all known Isospora spp, and this coccidian parasite was molecularly characterised at the 18S, 28S ribosomal RNA and the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase (COI) gene.
Two new species of Isospora (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from passeriform birds of South America
Two new species of Isospora (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) are described from the faeces of passeriform birds of South America, and Micropyle, polar granule, and oocyst residuum are absent.
A new Isospora sp. from Carduelis tristis (Aves: Fringillidae) from Ontario, Canada.
Oocysts found in the feces of the American goldfinch, Carduelis tristis, from Guelph, Ontario, Canada are described from Isospora gryphoni, which are spherical to subspherical, with a double-layered, smooth, colorless oocyst wall.
Afternoon shedding of a new species of Isospora (Apicomplexa) in the endangered Regent Honeyeater (Xanthomyza phrygia)
Faeces collected in the morning and in the afternoon revealed significant diurnal periodicity in oocyst shedding, indicating the high parasite burden in captive birds requires further investigation and comparison to the wild counterparts.
Exogenous and endogenous stages of Isospora brachyrhynchi sp. n. (Protozoa: Eimeriidae) from the American crow Corvus brachyrhynchos Brehm
Isospora brachyrhynchi developed below the nuclei of epithelial cells in the small intestine, and first-generation merogony occurred 24 h postinoculation in villar epithelium in the distal small intestine and occasionally in ...
