Coprological examination of the worm lizard Diplometopon zarudnyi Nikolskii revealed the presence of oöcysts of Choleoeimeria zarudnyi (Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003) n. comb. in five (17%) of the 30 lizards examined. Sporulated oöcysts were found in the faeces and the gallbladder contents. These are tetrasporocystic, ellipsoidal, 25–32 × 18–25 (mean 27 × 22) μm, with a smooth bi-layered wall. The dizoic sporocysts are ovoidal, 10–13 × 6–9 (mean 11 × 7) μm, with a granulated sporocyst residuum… 
Description of Choleoeimeria duszynskii n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gallbladder of the Middle Eastern short-fingered gecko Stenodactylusdoriae (Blanford) (Sauria: Gekkonidae) in Saudi Arabia
Choleoeimeria duszynskii n. sp. is described from the gallbladder of the Middle Eastern short-fingered gecko Stenodactylusdoriae (Blanford) from Salasel, Central region, Saudi Arabia. Oöcysts are
Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gall bladder of the horned viper Cerastes gasperettii (Serpentes: Viperidae) in Saudi Arabia.
It is believed that this coccidium from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers is best classified as a member of Choleoeimeria Paperna et Landsberg, 1989, because of its diagnostic features, sporocysts with a suture and composed of two plates and endogenous development limited to the biliary epithelium.
The Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) of Legless Lizards (Squamata: Lacertoidea: Amphisbaenia) of the World
Information is summarized on the 8 species of coccidia reported from legless lizards of the world and it is speculated that another 380 intestinal coccidi infecting this unique reptilian lineage wait to be discovered.


New species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the veiled chameleon, Chamaeleo calyptratus (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae), with taxonomic revision of eimerian coccidia from chameleons.
Coprological examination of 71 samples from a breeding colony of veiled chameleons revealed a presence of two species of coccidia, including a new coccidian species, Choleoeimeria hirbayah sp.
A new species of Choleoeimeria (apicomplexa: eimeriidae) from oustalet's chameleon, Furcifer oustaleti (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae).
One of three captive specimens of Oustalet's chameleon, Furcifer oustaleti (Mocquard) originally from Madagascar and housed at the Oklahoma City Zoological Park Herpetarium, was found to be passing an undescribed species of Choleoeimeria in its faeces, representing the second coccidian described from this lizard.
Endogenous stages of Choleoeimeria baltrocki (Daszak et Ball, 1991) n. comb. infecting the gall bladder of gold skink, Eumeces schneiderii Daudin, 1802 from Egypt
Based on the morphological features of the exogenous stages and endogenous development of the present parasite, its generic affiliation was revised and placed into the genus Choleoeimeria.
A New Species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Meller's Chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae)
A captive specimen of Meller's chameleon, Trioceros melleri (Gray), originally from Tanzania and housed at the Oklahoma City Zoological Park Herpetarium, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, was found to be passing an undescribed species of Choleoeimeria in its feces, representing the second coccidian documented from this lizard.

Five parasites are described in the lizard Amphisbaena alba (Amphisbaenidae) from the state of Par, North Brazil, and the presence of an unidentified parasite producing multinucleate cyst-like stages is revealed.
The phylogeny of Goussia and Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa; Eimeriorina) and the evolution of excystation structures in coccidia.
The phylogenetic relationships of Goussia janae and Choleoeimeria sp. were analyzed using the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU rDNA). This is a first attempt to study the molecular phylogeny of
Some coccidia from the gall-bladder and intestine of the teiid lizard Ameiva ameiva ameiva and the gecko Hemidactylus mabouia in north Brazil.
A study has been made of the endogenous development of two eimeriid Coccidia in the teiid lizard Ameiva ameiva, which were previously considered by Carini (1932) to be conspecific with Eimeria
Fecal samples from 11 colubrid snakes, representing 10 species, collected in Ecuador during October 1994 were examined for coccidian parasites and three species of Eimeria and 2 species of Isospora were observed and are described here as new.
A guideline for the preparation of species descriptions in the Eimeriidae.
This work proposes a specific set of guidelines for the preparation of species descriptions of coccidia based predominently on the structure of the sporulated oocyst, and emphasizes that ancillary data be incorporated whenever possible with the species description.
New species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae), coccidia of bile-bladders of reptiles, illustrating a multiplicity of host cell-parasite interrelations.
The described species demonstrate a diversity of associations with the bile-bladder epithelial lining, from a single parasite in a single hypertrophic host cell to multiple infections inducing the hypertrophied cells to form stratified layers, or merge into branched clumps.
