A checklist is given of the 89 named species of the gregarine family Lecudininae, exclusive of the 42 named species of the genus Lecudina (phylum Apicomplexa, class Sporozoea, subclass Gregarinia, order Eugregarinida, suborder Aseptatina). The list includes also the synonyms, host names, locations in hosts, known geographic distributions of the species, as well as key references. Another list is given of synonyms, lapsi calami, nomina nuda, etc., associated with the genera. A new genus… Expand
Checklist of the species of the aseptate gregarine families Aikinetocystidae, Diplocystidae, Allantocystidae, Schaudinnellidae, Ganymedidae, and Enterocystidae
Abstract The genera and species in six families of the eugregarine suborder Aseptatorina Chakravarty, 1960, are reviewed and the presently accepted ones are listed: Aikinetocystidae Bhatia, 1930 (twoExpand
New Gregarine Species (Apicomplexa) From Tunicates Show an Evolutionary History of Host Switching and Suggest a Problem with the Systematics of Lankesteria and Lecudina.
TLDR
Four new species of marine eugregarines infecting ascidian hosts and hypothesize that the continued addition of new species from polychaete and tunicate hosts as well as the construction of multigene phylogenies that include type-material will further dissolve the currently accepted distinction between Lankesteria and Lecudina.

Monocystella epibatis n.sp., a New Aseptate Gregarine Hyperparasite of Rhabdocoel Turbellarians Parasitic in the Crown of Thorns Starfish, Acanthaster planciLinnaeus, from the Great Barrier Reef
Summary A new protozoan species Monocystella epibatis (Apicomplexa, Eugregarinida) is described from the gut of the parasitic turbellarian Pterastericola vivipara found in the pyloric caeca of theExpand
Molecular systematics of marine gregarines (Apicomplexa) from North-eastern Pacific polychaetes and nemerteans, with descriptions of three novel species: Lecudina phyllochaetopteri sp. nov., Difficilina tubulani sp. nov. and Difficilina paranemertis sp. nov.
TLDR
This is the first report of molecular sequence data from gregarines that infect nemerteans and the two novel species of the genus Difficilina described in this study formed a strongly supported clade in the phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Molecular systematics of marine gregarine apicomplexans from Pacific tunicates, with descriptions of five novel species of Lankesteria.
TLDR
The molecular phylogenetic data suggested that species of Lankesteria with surface knobs form a clade that is nested within a paraphyletic assemblage species of Lanka with epicytic folds, whereas two of the species were covered with a dense pattern ofEpicytic knobs. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Gregarines from Sand Flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) and Description of Psychodiella n. g. (Apicomplexa: Gregarinida)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses performed in this study clearly demonstrated paraphyly of the current genus Ascogregarina and revealed disparate phylogenetic positions of g Regarines parasitizing mosquitoes and gregarines retrieved from sand flies. Expand
Molecular Phylogenetic Positions of Two New Marine Gregarines (Apicomplexa)—Paralecudina anankea n. sp. and Lecudina caspera n. sp.—from the Intestine of Lumbrineris inflata (Polychaeta) Show Patterns of Co‐evolution
Gregarine apicomplexans are unicellular parasites commonly found in the intestines and coeloms of invertebrate hosts. Traits associated with the conspicuous feeding stage of gregarines, known as theExpand
Molecular Phylogeny of Marine Gregarine Parasites (Apicomplexa) from Tube‐forming Polychaetes (Sabellariidae, Cirratulidae, and Serpulidae), Including Descriptions of Two New Species of Selenidium
TLDR
A species discovery survey of Selenidium from tube‐forming polychaetes uncovered five different morphotypes of trophozoites (feeding stages) living within the intestines of three different polychaete hosts, two of which were established in this study. Expand
Ascogregarina bostrichidorum n. sp. (lecudinidae, eugregarinida), a new gregarine parazitizing the larger grain borer, Prostephanus truncatusHorn (1878) (bostrichidae, coleoptera)

TLDR
The cephalins and gamonts of Lankesteria barretti differ from those of L. culicis (of Aedes aegypti) in having a relatively anterior instead of a central nucleus and in lacking a noticeable mucron; its longitudinal folds are not as well-developed as in L. Culicis, and its paraglycogen granules are larger. Expand
