SummaryThe features by which the body-form of a species of Zelleriella may be described are defined and compared with those of Opalina and Protoopalina. [...] Key ResultThe following new species are described: Z. angusticeps from Bufo angusticeps Smith from Cape Town; two species from Nile fish, namely, Z. distichodi from Distichodus rostratus Gunther (Citharinidae) and Z. synodontis from Synodontis clarias (Linnaeus) (Siluridae).Two types of cyst are described, one small, usually mononucleate, and relatively…Expand

Opalinidae in African Anura. II. Genera Protozelleriella n. g. and Zelleriella
TLDR
It is suggested that the Ranidae (in particular the genus Tomopterna) and the Hyperoliidae are among the major carriers of Zelleriella in the Afrotropical Region. Expand
Opalinidae in African Anura. III. Genus Cepedea
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in 9 families were checked for opalinids in the cloaca, it was suggested that the Ranidae and the Hyperoliidae are among the major carriers of Cepedea in the Afrotropical Region. Expand
Opalinidae in African Anura I. Genus Opalina
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in nine families were checked for opalinids in the cloaca, it is suggested that the Ranidae, the Phrynobatrachus and Ptychadena, the Hyperoliidae and the Rhacophoridae are among the major carriers of Opalina in the Afrotropical Region.

Opalinidae in African Anura. IV. Genus Protoopalina
TLDR
During 1988 and 1989, 409 specimens of southern African Anura comprising 50 species in nine families, were checked for opalines in the cloaca, it was suggested that the Bufonidae (genus Bufo) and the Ranidae (in particular the genera Cacosternum, Ptychadena, Rana and Strongylopus) are among the major carriers of Protoopalina in the Afrotropical Regional.

Geographical Distribution of Zellerielles
TLDR
The presence of Cape zellerielles is most easily explained on the basis of former land connexions with the other southern continents, and Wenrich has shown that host specificity of the Opalinidæ is much less rigid than Metcalf supposed. Expand
The species problem in the opalinids (Protozoa, Opalinata), with special reference to Protoopalina
TLDR
It is suggested that the opalinids may be a relict fauna much older than their usual hosts, the anurans, and that the genus Protoopalina may not represent the ancestral form of the group. Expand
Occurrence of Zelleriella, an Opalinid Ciliate, in South Africa
THE fauna and flora of the southern extremity of Africa present a number of striking resemblances to those of South America on one hand and Australia on the other. I have recently come across anExpand
Opalinids from Nile Fish
TLDR
A slowly growing number of records from non-amphibian hosts, namely, four species of reptiles, three of fish and one mollusc, appears inconsistent with the conclusion that Opalinids are a very isolated group of Protozoa. Expand
Etude Ultrastructurale de Différents Types de Kystes d'Opalines
TLDR
Cependant on retrouve leurs traces dans the region corticale, sous forme d'axonemes intracytoplasmiques plus ou moins desorganises et d'empilements de saccules associes a des rangees de microtubules, Ce seraient des kystes de resistance. Expand
