Myxidium immersum (Lutz, 1889), a gall-bladder protozoan parasite from South American Anura, is described for the first time in some Australian Anura. The cane toad, Bufo marinus, one of its natural hosts in South America, was introduced into Australia in 1935, and this led to the infection of native Australian frogs including: Hylidae, 12 species of Litoria; Myobatrachidae, four species of Limnodynastes, one each of Mixophyes, Ranidella and Uperoleia.

New species of Myxosporea from frogs and resurrection of the genus Cystodiscus Lutz, 1889 for species with myxospores in gallbladders of amphibians
TLDR
Two new myxosporean species in the gallbladders of frogs have recently spread across eastern Australia and cause disease and a synopsis of described species within Cystodiscus is provided. Expand
A Suspected Parasite Spill-Back of Two Novel Myxidium spp. (Myxosporea) Causing Disease in Australian Endemic Frogs Found in the Invasive Cane Toad
Infectious diseases are contributing to the decline of endangered amphibians. We identified myxosporean parasites, Myxidium spp. (Myxosporea: Myxozoa), in the brain and liver of declining nativeExpand
A NEW SPECIES OF MYXIDIUM (MYXOSPOREA: MYXIDIIDAE), FROM THE WESTERN CHORUS FROG, PSEUDACRIS TRISERIATA TRISERIATA, AND BLANCHARD'S CRICKET FROG, ACRIS CREPITANS BLANCHARDI (HYLIDAE), FROM EASTERN NEBRASKA: MORPHOLOGY, PHYLOGENY, AND CRITICAL COMMENTS ON AMPHIBIAN MYXIDIUM TAXONOMY
TLDR
Only with improved morphological analyses, accompanied by molecular data, and the deposit of type specimens, can the ambiguous nature of Myxidium be resolved. Expand
A new host and geographic record for Myxidium lesminteri (Protozoa: Myxosporea) from Tomopterna cryptotis (Amphibia: Ranidae), in Namibia, South-West Africa.
TLDR
A new host and geographic distribution record is reported for the myxosporean, Myxidium les- minteri from the stripe-burrowing frog, Tomopterna cryptotis (Ran- idae) in Namibia, South-West Africa. Expand
Museum material reveals a frog parasite emergence after the invasion of the cane toad in Australia
TLDR
The museum material proved essential to directly support the evidence of parasite emergence in Australian native frogs, and can be considered one of the luckiest parasites, because it has found an empty niche in Australia. Expand
Myxidium lesminteri n. sp. (Myxosporea: Myxidiidae) from the gall-bladder of three southern African Anura
During 1988 and 1989 409 specimens, representing 50 species in 9 families of southern African Anura from 26 localities throughout the Republic of South Africa and from Swaziland, were examined forExpand
Re-establishment of the family Coccomyxidae and description of five novel species of Auerbachia and Coccomyxa (Myxosporea: Bivalvulida) parasites from Australian fishes
TLDR
This work proposes the re-establishment of the family Coccomyxidae to house all species of the genera, Coccomyxa, Auerbachia and Globospora, based on phylogenetic data and on obvious paraphyly displayed by the Myxidiidae. Expand
Seasonal dynamics of the lungworm, Rhabdias pseudosphaerocephala, in recently colonised cane toad (Rhinella marina) populations in tropical Australia.
TLDR
Changes in parasite prevalence may reflect a trend for saturated soil to reduce parasite survival during the free-living infective stage, and to allow anuran hosts to disperse widely (thus reducing the transfer of directly transmitted parasites between hosts). Expand
The things they carried: The pathogenic effects of old and new parasites following the intercontinental invasion of the Australian cane toad (Rhinella marina)
TLDR
Both novel and co-evolved pathogens and parasites may have played significant roles in shaping the rapid evolution of immune system responses in cane toads within their invaded range. Expand
Ultrastructural observations on Myxidium serotinum (Protozoa: Myxosporea) from Bufo speciosus (Anura: Bufonidae), in Texas
TLDR
An ultrastructural study employing scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was conducted on the myxosporean, Myxidium serotinum Kudo and Sprague, 1940, and observations on the spore of M. serotinums are reported for the first time. Expand
