Abstract One morphologic type of sarcocyst was found in 26% (7/27) of Eurasian Coots (Fulica atra) and was described as Sarcocystis fulicae n. sp. using morphologic, 18S ribosomal (r)DNA, 28S rDNA, and internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS1) analysis. By light microscope, cysts were ribbon-shaped and measured 7.3 mm in length by 116 μm wide. Histologically, the cyst wall reached up to 1.2 μm in thickness and seemed smooth. The detected sarcocysts were packed with relatively small banana-shaped… Expand
Molecular and morphological description of Sarcocystis kutkienae sp. nov. from the common raven (Corvus corax).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis showed that S. kutkienae was most closely related to Sarcocystis spp. Expand
Morphological and genetic characterisation of Sarcocystis halieti from the great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo)
TLDR
Based on the molecular analysis, mainly of the ITS1 region, sarcocysts were identified as Sarcocystis halieti, the first Sarcocrystis species characterised in the great cormorant. Expand
Molecular identification of four Sarcocystis species in the herring gull, Larus argentatus, from Lithuania
TLDR
Larus argentatus is the first bird species found to act as intermediate host of four Sarcocystis spp. Expand
Morphological and molecular description of Sarcocystis ratti n. sp. from the black rat (Rattus rattus) in Latvia
TLDR
Phylogenetic and ecological data suggest that predatory mammals living near households are definitive hosts of Sarcocystis ratti, a parasite previously identified in the brown rat. Expand
Sarcocystis cristata sp. nov. (Apicomplexa, Sarcocystidae) in the imported great blue turaco Corythaeola cristata (Aves, Musophagidae)
TLDR
The examination of great blue turacos imported from the Central Africa Republic to Czech Republic allowed the morphological and molecular characterization of a new species of Sarcocystis, believed to be the first species in a musophagiform bird worldwide. Expand
Molecular identification of Sarcocystis halieti in the muscles of two species of birds of prey from Spain
Background Members of the genus Sarcocystis are protozoan parasites characterized by a prey–predator two-host life-cycle. Sarcocysts are formed in the muscles or central nervous system of theExpand

This is the first report of Sarcocystis oocysts in sea eagles and the first identification to species level of SARCocyst is oocyts in any type of eagle. Expand
Sarcocystis in the birds family Corvidae with description of Sarcocystis cornixi sp. nov. from the hooded crow (Corvus cornix)
TLDR
Having studied 67 birds of six species of the family Corvidae, Sarcocystis cysts were found in 16 (23.9%) individuals belonging to three species and the highest prevalence of infection was determined in the hooded crow (Corvus cornix), where S. cornixi is the most closely related to Sarcocrystis sp.

Description of Sarcocystis turdusi sp. nov. from the common blackbird (Turdus merula).
TLDR
The results of 18S rDNA, 28S r DNA and ITS-1 region sequences showed that S. turdusi was most closely related to S. columbae, S. calchasi, wobeseri and S. cornixi, and Phylogenetic results suggest that predatory birds are the most probable definitive hosts of S.Turdus i. Expand
