Despite the fact that Sarcocystis rileyi is one of the earliest described species of the genus Sarcocystis forming macrocysts in ducks, the life cycle of this species is still unknown in Europe. Sarcocystis spp. oocysts/sporocysts were observed in faeces of four of 23 (17.4 %) and in small intestine mucosal scrapings of four of 20 (20.0 %) red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) and in small intestine mucosal scrapings of seven of 13 (53.8 %) raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) hunted in Lithuania.

Molecular identification of Sarcocystis spp. in foxes (Vulpes vulpes) and raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) from Germany.
TLDR
The methodology of 18S rRNA gene amplification, cloning and sequencing is suitable to identify mixed infections with Sarcocystis spp. Expand
Molecular identification of Sarcocystis halieti n. sp., Sarcocystis lari and Sarcocystis truncata in the intestine of a white-tailed sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) in Norway☆
TLDR
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
Molecular characterization of Sarcocystis spp. in intestine mucosal scrapings and fecal samples of Pampas fox (Lycalopex gymnocercus).
TLDR
Results show that the mucosal scrapings are the eligible sample to identify prevalence and to proceed with species identification of Sarcocystis spp. Expand
Sarcocystis rileyi (Apicomplexa) in Anas platyrhynchos in Europe with a potential for spread
TLDR
Four specimens of mallard shot by local hunters (December 2020 to January 2021 along the eastern coastline of the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea) were diagnosed with a heavy load of sarcocysts in the musculature, revealing the causative pathogen to be Sarcocystis rileyi, which was originally described in North America in 1893.

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
The Role of Mustelids in the Transmission of Sarcocystis spp. Using Cattle as Intermediate Hosts
TLDR
There is strong evidence that mustelids serve as definitive hosts for Sarcocystis spp. Expand
Acute fatal sarcocystosis hepatitis in an Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) in Hong Kong.
TLDR
Fatal hepatitis in a 4year old male Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin from Hong Kong associated with a S. canis-like infection from Asia is reported. Expand
Morphological and molecular characterization of Sarcocystis wenzeli in chickens (Gallus gallus) in China
Background There has been considerable confusion concerning the number and classification of Sarcocystis spp. in chickens. Scarce nucleotide data of Sarcocystis spp. from chickens are provided inExpand
Sarcocystis rileyi in UK free-living wildfowl (Anatidae): surveillance, histopathology and first molecular characterisation
TLDR
DNA sequencing of UK isolates confirmed S rileyi in the five dabbling duck host species tested and the associated histopathological myopathy is described highlight an emerging issue to European wildfowl species and provides much opportunity for further research. Expand
Sarcocystis rileyi emerging in Hungary: is rice breast disease underreported in the region?
TLDR
Red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) are ubiquitous in Hungary, and a molecular finding in the faeces of one red fox confirms an already established autochthonous life cycle of S. rileyi in the region. Expand

TLDR
A raccoon dog was given cardiac muscle of reindeer infected with S. grueneri, and started shedding Sarcocystis sporocysts 10 days post feeding, and excreted sporocyts for at least 16 days, the first record of the raccoonDog as an experimental definitive host for S. Grueneri. Expand

TLDR
It is proved that canids (the red fox and arctic fox) are definitive hosts for S. alces and S. hjorti, as had been inferred from the phylogenetic position of these species. Expand

TLDR
It was concluded that the red fox can act as a final host for the three pathogenic species of Sarcocystis in cattle, sheep, and goats. Expand
The prevalence of Sarcocystis spp in dogs and red foxes
TLDR
Protozoan parasites of the genus Sarcocystis have been recognised for many years as intramuscular cysts of numerous vertebrates but the earlier stages in which schizonts develop in vascular endothelium may be severely pathogenic. Expand
Intestinal parasites of the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Slovenia.
TLDR
This is the first extensive study on the intestinal parasites of the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Slovenia and revealed two protozoan species: oocysts of Sarcocystis and Isospora. Expand
Morphologic and Molecular Characterization of the Sarcocysts of Sarcocystis rileyi (Apicomplexa: Sarcocystidae) from the Mallard Duck (Anas platyrhynchos)
TLDR
Diagnostic ultrastructural features and nucleotide sequences should aid in future studies and communications regarding this parasitic taxon, which lends itself to experimentation because its sarcocysts are macroscopic and easily excised from infected birds. Expand

TLDR
Sarcocystis spp sporocysts were found in feces of 10.1% of 198 red foxes, in 3.2% of 61 bobcats, and in none of 20 wolverines, 4 mink, or 10 raccoons, but Toxoplasma gondii was not found in laboratory mice inoculated with feces of bobcats and mountain lions. Expand
