Since their discovery, endoparasitic Myxozoa have been considered protozoans; however, a century ago, Stolc (1899) remarked that they should be classified as reduced cnidarians because of the nematocyst-like architecture of their spores. Later on, the multicellular nature of Myxozoa and the structural and developmental similarity of their polar capsules to cnidarian nematocysts were recognized repeatedly (recently by Lom and Dykov a, 1997; Siddall et al., 1995, and references therein).
