Ultrastructure and molecular phylogenetics of a new isolate of Pleistophora pagri sp. nov. (Microsporidia, Pleistophoridae) from Pagrus pagrus in Egypt
TLDR
The spore morphology and molecular systematic of a new microsporidian which was isolated from the common sea bream Pagrus pagrus from the Red Sea, Egypt have been studied and showed that the sequence of theMicrosporidium was most similar to five Pleistophora species with degrees of identity.
Morphological and molecular biological characterization of Pleistophora aegyptiaca sp. nov. infecting the Red Sea fish Saurida tumbil
TLDR
Comparison of the nucleotide sequences and divergence showed that the sequence of the present microsporidium was most similar to that of Pleistophora anguillarum (99.8% identity) differing in 13 nucleotide positions, so the present species was recorded and phylogenetically positioned as a new species of Pleistsophora.
Evaluating Spore Count and Sporophorous Vesicle Size in Ovavesicula popilliae (Microsporidia: Ovavesiculidae) in Adult Japanese Beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
TLDR
Varying number of spores may be due to failed divisions of sporonts, death of spores after formation, host effects or different pathogen strains.
Multiyear Survey of Coccidia, Cryptosporidia, Microsporidia, Histomona, and Hematozoa in Wild Quail in the Rolling Plains Ecoregion of Texas and Oklahoma, USA
TLDR
A survey on the prevalence of several protozoan parasites in wild northern bobwhite and scaled quail in the Rolling Plains ecoregion of Texas and Oklahoma suggests that coccidia infections are a significant risk factor in the health of wild quail while cryptosporidia and microsporidia may be much less significant than coccidiosis.

Molecular phylogeny of the Microsporidia: ecological, ultrastructural and taxonomic considerations.
TLDR
A comparative small subunit rDNA (ssrDNA) analysis of 125 species of Microsporidia shows that groups or clades are formed based largely on habitat and host, and indicates that structural and ultrastructural characters are unreliable for distinguishing among higher-level microsporidian taxa.
Ultrastructural Study and Description of Ovavesicula popilliae N. G., N. Sp. (Microsporida: Pleistophoridae) from the Japanese Beetle, Popillia japonica (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)1
A new genus and species of microsporidia, Ovavesicula popilliae n. g., n. sp., is described from the Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, on the basis of studies by light and electron microscopy.

TLDR
The octospores of certain microsporidia infecting Lepidoptera that were previously described as Thelohania spp.
Phylogenetic analysis of beta-tubulin sequences from amitochondrial protozoa.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of rRNA sequences from these amitochondrial organisms suggests that G. lamblia, T. vaginalis, and microsporidia are near the base of the eukaryotic tree, while E. histolytica clusters with mitochondria-containing species.
Phylogenetic Analysis of β-Tubulin Sequences from Amitochondrial Protozoa
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of rRNA sequences from these amitochondrial organisms suggests that G. lamblia, T. vaginalis, and microsporidia are near the base of the eukaryotic tree, while E. histolytica clusters with mitochondria-containing species.
Epizootiological investigations of the microsporidium Ovavesicula popilliae and bacterium Bacillus popilliae in field populations of the Japanese beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
TLDR
Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, population densities and prevalence of the pathogens Ovavesiculapopilliae Andreadis & Hanula and Bacillus popilliae Dutky are reported from three locations in Connecticut over a 3-yr period, and it is suggested that the effect of O. poppedilliae on its host is modified by environmental stress.
Nosema portugal, N. SP., isolated from gypsy moths (Lymantria dispar L.) collected in portugal
TLDR
The ssu rRNA sequences strongly suggest that this species is more closely related to the Vairimorpha subgroup within the Nosema/VairIMorpha clade than to the NoseMA subgroup.
Parasitic microorganisms of Japanese beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) and associated scarab larvae in Connecticut soils.
TLDR
Two of the infected species, the Asiatic garden beetle and the European chafer, Rhizotrogus majalis (Razoumowsky), are new records as natural hosts for this pathogen.
