Identification of a novel species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875 from the woylie, Bettongia penicillata Gray (Diprotodontia: Potoroidae) and the genetic characterisation of three Eimeria spp. from other potoroid marsupials
TLDR
Morphological and genetic comparison with other known species of Eimeria indicates that the material identified in woylies is novel, and molecular phylogenetic analyses conducted at the 18S rDNA and mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) loci revealed that E. woyliei n.
Choleoeimeria spp. Prevalence in Captive Reptiles in Germany and a New Treatment Option in a Lawson's Dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni)
TLDR
A retrospective study evaluating the prevalence of Choleoeimeria in fecal samples from lizards submitted for routine examination to a diagnostic laboratory in Germany found that prevalence was similar to data obtained 10 yr earlier at the same laboratory.
Choleoeimeria pogonae Alters the Bile Acid Composition of the Central Bearded Dragon (Pogona vitticeps)
TLDR
The shift in bile acid content identified in the C. pogonae infected bearded dragon may contribute to cholelithiasis and mucosal damage.
The ecology of parasite transmission during fauna translocations: Observations from the woylie (Bettongia penicillata)
TLDR
Significant changes to the parasite community occurred within the first few months after translocation, and the parasite communities of translocated and resident woylies generally converged to become more similar over time, with failure of some parasite taxa to persist and new host-parasite associations emerging.

A new species of Choleoeimeria (apicomplexa: eimeriidae) from oustalet's chameleon, Furcifer oustaleti (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae).
TLDR
One of three captive specimens of Oustalet's chameleon, Furcifer oustaleti (Mocquard) originally from Madagascar and housed at the Oklahoma City Zoological Park Herpetarium, was found to be passing an undescribed species of Choleoeimeria in its faeces, representing the second coccidian described from this lizard.
Five new species of coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Madagascan chameleons (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae)
TLDR
Coprological examination of 19 Madagascan chameleons of the genera Furcifer and Brookesia revealed the presence of five new coccidian species, including E. vencesi, which is confined to the intestine, while that of E. glawi occurs in the gall-bladder.
New species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the veiled chameleon, Chamaeleo calyptratus (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae), with taxonomic revision of eimerian coccidia from chameleons.
TLDR
Coprological examination of 71 samples from a breeding colony of veiled chameleons revealed a presence of two species of coccidia, including a new coccidian species, Choleoeimeria hirbayah sp.
A New Species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Meller's Chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae)
TLDR
A captive specimen of Meller's chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Gray), originally from Tanzania and housed at the Oklahoma City Zoological Park Herpetarium, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, was found to be passing an undescribed species of Choleoeimeria in its feces, representing the second coccidian documented from this lizard.

TLDR
Five parasites are described in the lizard Amphisbaena alba (Amphisbaenidae) from the state of Par, North Brazil, and the presence of an unidentified parasite producing multinucleate cyst-like stages is revealed.
Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gall bladder of the horned viper Cerastes gasperettii (Serpentes: Viperidae) in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
It is believed that this coccidium from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers is best classified as a member of Choleoeimeria Paperna et Landsberg, 1989, because of its diagnostic features, sporocysts with a suture and composed of two plates and endogenous development limited to the biliary epithelium.
SIX NEW SPECIES OF COCCIDIA (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) FROM EAST AFRICAN CHAMELEONS (SAURIA: CHAMAELEONIDAE)
TLDR
Coprological examination of 83 East African chameleon specimens revealed 32.5% prevalence of coccidian parasites and six species are described as new, including Eimeria tilburyi and Isospora necasi n.
Description of Choleoeimeria duszynskii n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gallbladder of the Middle Eastern short-fingered gecko Stenodactylusdoriae (Blanford) (Sauria: Gekkonidae) in Saudi Arabia
Choleoeimeria duszynskii n. sp. is described from the gallbladder of the Middle Eastern short-fingered gecko Stenodactylusdoriae (Blanford) from Salasel, Central region, Saudi Arabia. Oöcysts are
Redescription of Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 as Choleoeimeria zarudnyi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
TLDR
Based on the morphological features of the exogenous stages and the endogenous development of the present parasite, its generic affiliation is revised and Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 is transferred to the genus Choleoeimeria.
