Coccidia of New World passerine birds (Aves: Passeriformes): a review of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 and Isospora Schneider, 1881 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
The coccidia of 83 eimeriid species were organised and grouped according to the family of the host, following the widely recognised concept of family-specificity and the updated systematics of the class Aves. Expand
Polymorphism and genetic diversity of Isospora parnaitatiaiensis Silva, Rodrigues, Lopes, Berto, Luz, Ferreira & Lopes, 2015 (Eimeriidae) from antbirds (Thamnophilidae) in Brazil.
Isospora parnaitatiaiensis was identified from a new host, the plain antvireo Dysithamnus mentalis, and also from the white-shouldered fire-eye Pyriglena leucoptera Vieillot, in its type-locality, the Itatiaia National Park in the southeastern Brazil, and a preliminary genotypic characterisation by sequencing the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene is provided.

Isospora borbai n. sp. (Chromista: Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from gnateaters Conopophaga spp. (Passeriformes: Tyranni: Conopophagidae) in South America
I. borbai is considered as new to science and the first coccidian species recorded from Conopophagidae, and isolates from other Neotropical passerine birds. Expand
Isospora sagittulae McQuistion & Capparella, 1992 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from antbirds (Passeriformes: Thamnophilidae) in the Amazon and Atlantic Forest of Brazil: with notes on its distribution and dispersion in the Neotropical region
Strong morphological, molecular, and ecological equivalences ensure the unique identification of I. sagittulae from Amazonian antbirds and indicates that other antbirds in the Brazilian Cerrado should disperse I. SagittULae to the Amazon and Atlantic Forest. Expand
A new coccidian, Isospora parnaitatiaiensis n. sp. (Apicomplexa, Eimeriidae), from the white-shouldered fire-eye Pyriglena leucoptera (Passeriformes, Thamnophilidae) from South America
A new coccidian species (Protozoa: Apicomplexa: Isospora) parasitizing the white-shouldered fire-eye Pyriglena leucoptera (Vieillot, 1818) is described in the Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, representing a “conservation island” of biodiversity. Expand
Coccidial dispersion across trans- and cis-Andean antbirds (Passeriformes: Thamnophilidae): Isospora sagittulae (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from nonsympatric hosts
Isospora sagittulae McQuistion and Capparella, 1992 (Protozoa: Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) is reported from White-throated Antbirds and from Common Scale-backed Antbirds, which are thamnophilid birds from the Brazilian Amazon. Expand
