Abstract. Using plastid 23S and nuclear 18S rDNA partial sequences for 16 Eimeria species from rodents, we compared their molecular phylogenetic inferences with morphological features and host specificity. The 16 ingroup taxa included Eimeria species which had different morphological features, but were from the same host genus or species, and species which had similar morphological features, but were from different host families or genera. Molecular phylogenies grouped the 16 rodent Eimeria… Expand
Generalist Eimeria species in rodents: multilocus analyses indicate inadequate resolution of established markers
TLDR
It is shown that species-level resolution should not be assumed for COI and 18S markers in Coccidia, and host-parasite co-speciation at shallow phylogenetic nodes, as well as contemporary coccidian host ranges more generally, are still open questions that need to be addressed using novel genetic markers with higher resolution.

Generalist Eimeria species in rodents: Multilocus analyses indicate inadequate resolution of established markers
Abstract Intracellular parasites of the genus Eimeria are described as tissue/host‐specific. Phylogenetic classification of rodent Eimeria suggested that some species have a broader host range thanExpand
PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF EIMERIA ANTROZOI, A BAT COCCIDIUM (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO MORPHOLOGICALLY SIMILAR EIMERIA SPP. FROM BATS AND RODENTS BASED ON NUCLEAR 18S AND PLASTID 23S rDNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
The phylogenies based onplastid 23S rDNA data and combined data of both plastid and nuclear genes grouped 2 bat Eimeria and 3 morphologically similar Eimaria species from rodents into 2 separate clades with high bootstrap support, which supports E. antrozoi as a valid species. Expand
Phylogeny of the reptilian Eimeria: are Choleoeimeria and Acroeimeria valid generic names?
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses confirmed the independent evolutionary origin of the Eimeria‐like species infecting lizards and supported the taxonomic validity of the genera Acroeimeria and Choleoeimeria. Expand
Host-Parasite Incongruences in Rodent Eimeria Suggest Significant Role of Adaptation Rather than Cophylogeny in Maintenance of Host Specificity
TLDR
This study extends the data set by adding 71 new sequences of coccidia infecting 16 small-mammal genera, mostly rodents, and confirms the previous hypothesis that Eimeria, in its current morphology-based delimitation, is not a monophyletic group. Expand
Species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) From Tree Squirrels (Sciurus niger) (Rodentia: Sciuridae) and Analysis of the ITS1, ITS2, and 5.8S rDNA
TLDR
Comparison of pairwise distances suggests that E. lancasterensis from Wyoming and Virginia are conspecific, and Maximum Parsimony tree construction identified 2 lineages, one E. ontarioensis and one E., which had a strong bootstrap support and were unable to resolve the Wyoming andVirginia strains.

Redescription of Eimeria megabubonis Upton, Campbell, Weigel & McKown, 1990 (Apicomplexa: Emeriidae) from the great horned owl Bubo virginianus (Gmelin)
TLDR
Oöcysts of a coccidian were isolated by faecal flotation from the lower intestinal contents of an opportunistically collected, recently deceased great horned owl Bubo virginianus (Gmelin), sporulated in potassium dichromate, and subjected to morphological and molecular characterisation. Expand
Third lineage of rodent eimerians: morphology, phylogeny and re-description of Eimeria myoxi (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Eliomys quercinus (Rodentia: Gliridae)
TLDR
A re-description of Eimeria myoxi is provided, which contains morphological and molecular characteristics sufficient for its further unequivocal identification and suggests that this species does not fall within the 2 known rodent-specific groups but branches as a third independent lineage. Expand
First molecular data on Eimeria truttae from brown trout (Salmo trutta)
TLDR
This study is the first to characterize E. truttae at the molecular level, thus helping to clarify the phylogenetic relationships between this and other Eimeria species isolated from fish and contributing further to the knowledge about this protozoan parasite. Expand
Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from small mammals of the southwestern sandhills in Nebraska, USA /
TLDR
A multivariate statistical analysis performed on measurement variables of the oocysts and sporocysts revealed reasonable separation of species of Eimeria. Expand
