Phenotypic Plasticity in a Gregarine Parasite (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinordia) Infecting Grasshoppers
TLDR
The findings indicate that gregarines can exhibit phenotypic plasticity, and parasitologists studying g Regarines need to be aware of intraspecific variation in their study organisms. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships, Evolution, and Systematic Revision of the Septate Gregarines (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinorida: Septatorina)
TLDR
High-level diversification of Septatorina resulted from adaptations of the gametocyst, allowing colonization of both terrestrial and sweet-water habitats, suggesting that evolutionarily, gregarine species track niche resources along lines of transmission; they do not necessarily track host species in evolutionary time.

Revision of the Genus Protomagalhaensia and Description of Protomagalhaensia wolfi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinida: Hirmocystidae) and Leidyana haasi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinida: Leidyanidae) Parasitizing the Lobster Cockroach, Nauphoeta cinerea (Dictyoptera: Blaberidae)
TLDR
The redescribe P. wolfi and L. haasi and refer them to genera other than Gregarina, establish neotype specimens, revise the diagnosis of Protomagalhaensia to reflect oocyst variation within the genus and distinguish it from the other 15 genera comprising Hirmocystidae. Expand
Amphisiella annulata (Kahl, 1928) Borror, 1972 (Ciliophora: Hypotricha): Morphology, Notes on Morphogenesis, Review of Literature, and Neotypification
Summary. The morphology and some morphogenetic details of the marine hypotrich Amphisiella annulata (Kahl, 1928) were investigated using live observation and protargol impregnation. The populationExpand
The life cycle of Leidyana ampulla sp.n. [Apicomplexa: Eugregarinorida: Leidyanidae] in the grasshopper Ronderosia bergi [Stal] [Orthoptera: Acrididae: Melanoplinae]
TLDR
Leidyana ampulla, a new species of septate eugregarine, is described from the Argentine grasshopper Ronderosia bergi, which had a characteristic bottle-like appearance and a total length that ranged from 280 to 584 µm. Expand
Efficacy of Oral Metronidazole and Potassium Sorbate Against Two Gregarine Parasites, Protomagalhaensia granulosae and Gregarina cubensis (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinida), Infecting the Death's Head Cockroach, Blaberus discoidalis
TLDR
The results eliminate potassium sorbate as a chemotherapeutic agent in this system but suggest that metronidazole has promise as a gregarine control agent in arthropod monoculture. Expand
EFFICACY OF ORAL SULFADIMETHOXINE AGAINST TWO GREGARINE PARASITES, PROTOMAGALHAENSIA GRANULOSAE AND GREGARINA CUBENSIS (APICOMPLEXA: EUGREGARINIDA), INFECTING THE DEATH'S HEAD COCKROACH, BLABERUS DISCOIDALIS
TLDR
The possible use of sulfadimethoxine to produce gregarine-free insect cultures and the potential utility of gregarines as target organisms for screening pharmacologically active compounds for use against other intestinal apicomplexans are discussed. Expand

Parasitization potential of two cephaline gregarines, Leidyana subramanii Pushkala and Muralirangan and Retractocephalus dhawanii sp. n. on the tobacco grasshopper, Atractomorpha crenulata (Fab.)
TLDR
Though mortality rates were low in gregarines infected grasshoppers, parasitization reduced food consumption as well as body weight considerably compared to the control, indicating possible long-term significance. Expand
