Ornamental fishes of the species Nothobranchius eggersi and N. korthausae (Cyprinodontidae) were infected by a microsporean of the genus Glugea. In various body organs, primarily in the intestinal wall, it elicited the formation of xenomas with a structure typical of Glugea anomala (Moniez, 1887). In fact, the shape and size of spores coincided with G. anomala and there was no significant difference in ultrastructural features of either the xenoma, its developmental stages, or mature spores… Expand
