A myxosporean species found to develop in the liver of 10 out of 24 common shrews, Sorex araneus L., caught in South Bohemia, Czech Republic, was identified as Soricimyxum fegati Prunescu, Prunescu, Pucek et Lom, 2007, the unique representative of the genus and the first myxosporean species known to develop from plasmodia to spores in a terrestrial mammal. The original description of this species, based on fixed material, is supplemented with new data based on fresh material and with partial… Expand
A novel myxozoan parasite of terrestrial mammals: description of Soricimyxum minuti sp. n. (Myxosporea) in pygmy shrew Sorex minutus from Hungary.
TLDR
This work has identified a novel myxosporean Soricimyxum minuti sp. Expand
A synopsis of records of myxozoan parasites (Cnidaria: Myxozoa) from shrews, with additional data on Soricimyxum fegati from common shrew Sorex araneus in Hungary and pygmy shrew Sorex minutus in Slovakia.
TLDR
Given the lack of distinguishing morphological or morphometric characters between Soricimyxum spp. Expand
Classification and Phylogenetics of Myxozoa
TLDR
This chapter provides an updated spore-based taxonomic key that takes into account the recent recognition of the cnidarian origin of myxozoans as well as important revisions at generic, family and suborder levels over the last decade. Expand
Sphaeromyxids form part of a diverse group of myxosporeans infecting the hepatic biliary systems of a wide range of host organisms
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses confirm that sphaeromyxids form a monophyletic group, subdivided into straight and arcuate spore forms, within the hepatic biliary clade that infect a wide range of freshwater associated animals. Expand
Xenoma-like formations induced by Soricimyxum fegati (Myxosporea) in three species of shrews (Soricomorpha: Soricidae), including records of new hosts.
TLDR
Lesions associated with S. fegati infections in the liver, the organ of specific localisation of the parasite, were found to be induced by proliferative stages migrating toward lumina of bile ducts. Expand
Remarks on the validity of Myxobolus ampullicapsulatus and Myxobolus honghuensis (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) based on SSU rDNA sequences
TLDR
Three populations of Myxobolus ampullicapsulatus are isolated from the gills of crucian carp, Carassius auratus auratus, two from Yongchuan, Chongqing area and one from Poyang Lake, Jiangxi area, China, their genetic distance and gene similarity are analyzed, and their relationship is explored based on Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood analyses of their small subunit ribosomal DNA. Expand
Concatenated SSU and LSU rDNA data confirm the main evolutionary trends within myxosporeans (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) and provide an effective tool for their molecular phylogenetics.
TLDR
The D5-3'-end part of the LSU rRNA gene is proposed as the most informative region which provides in concatenation with the complete SSU a well resolved and robust tree. Expand
Myxosporean hyperparasites of gill monogeneans are basal to the Multivalvulida
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that a myxosporean hyperparasite of gill monogeneans is detectable in the fish host, and this species is described as a new species, Myxidium incomptavermi. Expand
Myxozoan infections of caecilians demonstrate broad host specificity and indicate a link with human activity.
TLDR
This first known report of myxozoan infections in caecilians provides evidence of a broad geographic and host range, however, the source of these infections remains unknown and could be related to exposure in South America, the U.K. or to conditions in captivity. Expand
Myxozoans Exploiting Homeotherms
TLDR
Records of myxozoans from small terrestrial mammals, waterfowl and those associated with humans are reviewed, and a single evolutionary expansion from an aquatic Myxidium-clade ancestor to semi-aquatic and terrestrial hosts and environments is suggested. Expand

TLDR
The phylogenetic trees derived from this study suggest that several currently utilised characters may be homoplasious or that reliance on a single gene tree may not adequately reflect the phylogeny of the myxosporeans. Expand
The first finding of myxosporean development from plasmodia to spores in terrestrial mammals: Soricimyxum fegati gen. et sp. n. (Myxozoa) from Sorex araneus (Soricomorpha).

A new myxosporean (Myxozoa) species discovered in the liver of shrews, Sorex araneus L., collected in the Bialowieza primeval forest (Poland), which had about 40% prevalence at the investigated locality. Expand
TETRACAPSULA RENICOLA N. SP. (MYXOZOA:SACCOSPORIDAE); THE PKX MYXOZOAN—THE CAUSE OF PROLIFERATIVE KIDNEY DISEASE OF SALMONID FISHES
TLDR
These analyses and those of others, along with phenotypic observations, indicate that salmonid fishes are the primary myxosporean hosts for PKX, that the cryptic spores of PKX in salmonids are the fully formedMyxospores as they occur in the fish host, and that PKX represents distinct species that was previously place in the genus Tetracapsula in the family Saccosporidae.

TLDR
The surviving classification of myxosporeans, based on spore morphology, is discussed in the context of the still fragmentary data resulting from SSU rDNA sequence analyses. Expand
Ultrastructure and small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequence of Henneguya lesteri n. sp. (Myxosporea), a parasite of sand whiting Sillago analis (Sillaginidae) from the coast of Queensland, Australia.
TLDR
Henneguya lesteri is the first marine species of HenneguYA to be characterized at the molecular level: 1966 bp of the small-subunit (18S) rDNA is determined, and results indicated that differences between this and the hitherto studied freshwater HenneGuya species are greater than differences among the freshwater HenNEguya species.

Phylogenetic relationships among eight Eimeria species infecting domestic fowl inferred using complete small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
Clades of avian Eimeria species and the apparent absence of coccidia that infect the ceca of jungle fowl all suggest that E. necatrix and E. tenella may have arisen from a host switch, perhaps from the North American turkey, Meleagris gallopavo. Expand
