SYNOPSIS. The gregarine order Archigregarinorida is redefined. The new family Selenidioididae is established in it, containing the genera Selenidioides n. g. with 11 species, Meroselenidium with 1 and Merogregarina with 1. The new family Exoschizonidae is also established in it, with 1 genus, Exoschizon, containing 1 species. The family Selenidiidae is transferred to the order Eugregarinorida in a new superfamily, Lecudinicae, and redefined to exclude the presence of merogony. As redefined, the… Expand
Fine structure and putative feeding mechanism of the archigregarine Selenidium orientale (Apicomplexa: Gregarinomorpha).
TLDR
The present study of the fine structure of trophozoites of another archigregarine species Selenidium orientale Bogolepova, 1953, with special reference to the forebody structure of the attached individuals allows more confident discussion of the plesiomorphic status of the Archigregarines. Expand

Molecular phylogeny and ultrastructure of Selenidium serpulae (Apicomplexa, Archigregarinia) from the calcareous tubeworm Serpula vermicularis (Annelida, Polychaeta, Sabellida)
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic analyses indicated that the nearest sister lineage to S. serpulae was S. vivax, a bizarre tape‐like gregarine found in the intestines of sipunculids, which helped to illustrate that the diversification and biogeographical distribution of archigregarine parasites is probably more extensive than usually assumed.

Molecular Phylogeny of Pacific Archigregarines (Apicomplexa), Including Descriptions of Veloxidium leptosynaptae n. gen., n. sp., from the Sea Cucumber Leptosynapta clarki (Echinodermata), and Two New Species of Selenidium
TLDR
This work describes two novel species of Selenidium and describes a novel genus of archigregarine, Veloxidium leptosynaptae n. Expand
Fine structure and Molecular Phylogenetic Position of Two Marine Gregarines, Selenidium pygospionis sp. n. and S. pherusae sp. n., with Notes on the Phylogeny of Archigregarinida (Apicomplexa).
Archigregarines are a key group for understanding the early evolution of Apicomplexa. Here we report morphological, ultrastructural, and molecular phylogenetic evidence from two archigregarineExpand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of the marine gregarine parasite Selenidium oshoroense n. sp. (Gregarina, Apicomplexa) isolated from a Northwest Pacific Hydroides ezoensis Okuda 1934 (Serpulidae, Polychaeta)
TLDR
Morphological differences were supported in phylogenetic analysis which grouped S. oshoroense n. Expand
Archigregarines of the English Channel revisited: New molecular data on Selenidium species including early described and new species and the uncertainties of phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The phylogenies using the extended gregarine sampling show that the archigregarines are indeed not monophyletic with one strongly supported clade of Selenidium sequences around the type species S. pendula, and suggest the revision of the whole archIGregarine taxonomy with only the species within this clade remaining in the genus Selenidia, while the other species should be moved into newly erected genera.

TLDR
A checklist is given of the 89 named species of the gregarine family Lecudininae, exclusive of the 42 named species and the synonyms, lapsi calami, nomina nuda, etc., associated with the genera. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny and Surface Morphology of Marine Archigregarines (Apicomplexa), Selenidium spp., Filipodium phascolosomae n. sp., and Platyproteum n. g. and comb. from North‐Eastern Pacific Peanut Worms (Sipuncula)
ABSTRACT. The trophozoites of two novel archigregarines, Selenidium pisinnus n. sp. and Filipodium phascolosomae n. sp., were described from the sipunculid Phascolosoma agassizii. The trophozoites ofExpand
Morphology and molecular systematic of marine gregarines (Apicomplexa) from Southwestern Atlantic spionid polychaetes.
TLDR
Four gregarine species that inhabit the intestines of three spionid species from the Patagonian coast, Argentina are described for the first time, and a new species, Polyrhabdina madrynense sp. Expand

The Life cycle of two Species of “ Selenidium ” from the Polychaete Worm Potamilla reniformis
TLDR
Two new schizogregarines are described from the gut of the polychaete worm Potamilla reniformis, and a new genus, Meroselenidium, is proposed, of which M. keilini is the type species. Expand
The Schizogregarines: A Review and a New Classification
TLDR
The Schizogregarines were formerly known as Amoebosporidia Aime Schneider (1884), a name given in misapprehension of the character of the cytoplasmic processes, fixative in function, present in the genus Ophryocystis, and are now given to a sub-order of the Gregarinida, the remaining members of which are known as the Eugregarinae. Expand
Observations Biologiques et Ultrastructurales sur les Selenidiidae et Leurs Conséquences sur la Systématique des Grégarinomorphes
TLDR
The results allow one to give a new definition of the Order Archigregarinida: Gregarines with ultrastructural organization of the trophozoites similar to that of dissemination forms, and the absence of schizogony in numerous species, shows that this criterion is uncertain. Expand
Observations on the Sporozoa Inhabiting the Gut of the Polychaete Worm Polydora flava Claparède1
TLDR
Evidence is submitted to show that these intracellular forms represent the schizogonic phase in the life-cycle of the Selenidium, which shows a striking resemblance to those Coccidia occurring in the higher animals. Expand
Lankesteria barretti n. sp. (Eugregarinida, Diplocystidae), a parasite of the mosquito Aedes triseriatus (Say) and a review of the genus Lankesteria Mingazzini.

  • 1969
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
The Fine Structure of Two Archigregarines, Selenidium fallax and Ditrypanocystis cirratuli
TLDR
Objects described as lipochondria have a regular distribution at the bases of the grooves in the pellicle and are probably formed from the inner components of the peLLicle and form the mechanism by which Selenidiids move. Expand
Scanning electron microscopy of gregarines (Protozoa, Sporozoa) and its contribution to the theory of gregarine movement.
TLDR
Detailed surface structure was used to reveal detailed surface structure of 4 septate and one aseptate species of eugregarines and the undulatory pattern is absent from Nematocystis, which does not glide. Expand
Ditrypanocystis cirratuli [Sporozoa, Archigregarinida] parasitic in Cirratulus cirratus from Plymouth
TLDR
The polychaete worms Cirratulus cirratus and Cirriformia tentaculata harbour a number of archigregarines which have frequently been confused in the past and a new parasite, Ditrypanocystis cirratuli, is recorded from C. Cirratus. Expand
