Partial plastid 23S and nuclear 18S rDNA genes were amplified and sequenced from 2 morphologically similar Eimeria species, E. antrozoi from a bat (Antrozous pallidus) and E. arizonensis from deer mice (Peromyscus spp.), as well as some other Eimeria species from bats and rodents. The phylogenetic trees clearly separated E. antrozoi from E. arizonensis. The phylogenies based on plastid 23S rDNA data and combined data of both plastid and nuclear genes grouped 2 bat Eimeria and 3 morphologically… Expand
First amplification of Eimeria hessei DNA from the lesser horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus hipposideros) and its phylogenetic relationships with Eimeria species from other bats and rodents.
TLDR
A partial sequence of the Eimeria hessei 18S rRNA gene was isolated from the lesser horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus hipposideros), a European bat species, and it was confirmed to be E. hessei, one of the best-documented parasites in bats. Expand
Third lineage of rodent eimerians: morphology, phylogeny and re-description of Eimeria myoxi (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Eliomys quercinus (Rodentia: Gliridae)
TLDR
A re-description of Eimeria myoxi is provided, which contains morphological and molecular characteristics sufficient for its further unequivocal identification and suggests that this species does not fall within the 2 known rodent-specific groups but branches as a third independent lineage. Expand
Species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) From Tree Squirrels (Sciurus niger) (Rodentia: Sciuridae) and Analysis of the ITS1, ITS2, and 5.8S rDNA
TLDR
Comparison of pairwise distances suggests that E. lancasterensis from Wyoming and Virginia are conspecific, and Maximum Parsimony tree construction identified 2 lineages, one E. ontarioensis and one E., which had a strong bootstrap support and were unable to resolve the Wyoming andVirginia strains. Expand
Evolutionary plasticity in coccidia - striking morphological similarity of unrelated coccidia (apicomplexa) from related hosts: Eimeria spp. from African and Asian Pangolins (Mammalia: Pholidota).
TLDR
While precise position of the two Eimeria species from pangolins could not be firmly established due to the lack of related taxa, it is evident that they are not closely related and do not fall into any of the so far recognized eimerian lineages. Expand
First molecular data on Eimeria truttae from brown trout (Salmo trutta)
TLDR
This study is the first to characterize E. truttae at the molecular level, thus helping to clarify the phylogenetic relationships between this and other Eimeria species isolated from fish and contributing further to the knowledge about this protozoan parasite. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of eimeriid coccidia (Eimeriidae, Eimeriorina, Apicomplexa, Alveolata): A preliminary multi-gene and multi-genome approach
TLDR
Genus-level relationships, or higher, appear best supported by 18S rDNA analyses, and species-level analyses are best investigated using mt COI sequences; for parasites for which both loci are available, nuclear 18SrDNA sequences combined with mitochondrial COISequences provide a compact and informative molecular dataset for inferring the evolutionary relationships taxa in the Apicomplexa. Expand
Genetic characterization and phylogenetic analysis of Eimeria arloingi in Iranian native kids
TLDR
It was showed that the ITS1 and 18S rDNA gene are useful genetic markers for the specific identification and differentiation of Eimeria spp. Expand
Host-Parasite Incongruences in Rodent Eimeria Suggest Significant Role of Adaptation Rather than Cophylogeny in Maintenance of Host Specificity
TLDR
This study extends the data set by adding 71 new sequences of coccidia infecting 16 small-mammal genera, mostly rodents, and confirms the previous hypothesis that Eimeria, in its current morphology-based delimitation, is not a monophyletic group. Expand
Eimeria trichosuri: phylogenetic position of a marsupial coccidium, based on 18S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
This analysis placed E. trichosuri clones in a clade that diverged before the major clade comprising species from placental mammals, consistent with host phylogeny where marsupials represent an ancient evolutionary line that predates the placental mammal line. Expand
Morphological, molecular and phylogenetic characterisation of Eimeria macyi Wheat, 1975 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) in the eastern red bat Lasiurus borealis (Müller) from Mississippi, USA
TLDR
In November 2017, oöcysts of the coccidian Eimeria macyi Wheat, 1975 were isolated from the faeces of a single eastern red bat Lasiurus borealis Müller in Lowndes County, Mississippi, USA, which represents a new host record of E.macyi in anEastern red bat and a new geographic locality. Expand

Taxonomy and systematics of some Eimeria species of murid rodents as determined by the ITS1 region of the ribosomal gene complex.
TLDR
ITS1 sequencing appears to provide data that can be used for taxonomic and phylogenetic studies on the speciose genus Eimeria, and may be especially useful when samples contain insufficient numbers of oocysts for other molecular-based methods, e.g. RAPD-PCR. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among rodent Eimeria species determined by plastid ORF470 and nuclear 18S rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The oocyst residuum was the most determinant feature that differentiated the two lineages of rodent Eimeria species, which reflect more their morphological differences than host specificity. Expand
Molecular phylogenies suggest the oocyst residuum can be used to distinguish two independent lineages of Eimeria spp in rodents
TLDR
Examination of the morphological features of all 16 Eimeria species indicates that only the oocyst residuum shows a clear correlation to the phylogenetic relationships determined by the molecular data, and it seems likely that the two EIMeria lineages split before their host families diverged.

Riboprinting appears to provide useful data for taxonomic and phylogenetic studies on the genus Eimeria and may be especially practical when samples do not contain enough oocysts for other molecular-based methods. Expand
