Abstract The pathology and morphology of Pleistophora milesi sp. nov. are described. The parasite invades the fat bodies of the larvae of the endemic mosquito Maorigoeldia argyropus. It also attacks the introduced Aedes notoscriptus, which appears highly susceptible to infection. 
Gregarine and microsporidan protozoa in Aedes polynesiensis, Tokelau Islands. Recent accidental importations?
Conspicuous melanization of many of the spores and cysts of V. culicis and other data collected over a 27-year period support the speculation that these widespread protozoan parasites may have invaded the local population of A. polynesiensis following the recent accidental importation and establishment of Aedes (S.) aegypti (L.).

Epizootiology and Microbial Control
The microsporidia are among the most common pathogens found infecting insects under natural field conditions and have increased significantly during the past decade, especially where extensive studies with specific groups of insects have been conducted in search of promising pathogens for use in microbial control.
