Haemocystidium papernai n. sp., a parasite of Agama nupta fusca in Sind, Pakistan produces large halteridial gametocytes in active infections that do not differ in morphology by sex. In chronic phase macrogametocytes are larger than microgametocytes. In Baluchistan, Agama nupta nupta is parasitised by Haemocystidium quettaensis n. sp. Gametocytes are smaller than those of H. papernai n. sp., round or oval in shape and heavily pigmented. Macrogametocytes are larger than microgametocytes and more…

Revision of Hemoproteid Genera and Description and Redescription of Two Species of Chelonian Hemoproteid Parasites
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of new isolates from the Peruvian Amazon strongly support the separation of the non-avian parasites into a separate genus, and proposes that subgeneric classification of Haemocystidium and Simondia be applied to parasites of squamates and chelonians, respectively.

A HAEMOCYSTIDIUM SPECIES FROM THE EAST AFRICAN GECKO LYGODACTYLUS CAPENSIS GROTEI
TLDR
Macrogametocytes and microgametocytes in chronic phase were broader, larger, and less elongate and most commonly halteridial, whereas in acute phase, they were narrower and more elongate, mainly in connection with endothelium and connective tissue of lung.

Redescription of Haemoproteus mesnili (Apicomplexa: Plasmodiidae) and its meronts, with description of a second haemosporidian parasite of African cobras.
TLDR
Mature gametocytes in the acute phase of infection averaged 17.7 X 7.3 jim, and L:W ratio 2.52; both sexes were heavily pigmented, with 31-62 black granules dispersed in macrogametocytes; 20-46 granules were often clumped or concentrated near ends of microgametocytes.

Epizootiology of the Japanese saurian malaria parasite, Plasmodium sasai.
TLDR
Vectors apparently were infected from adult lizards with chronic, low level, predominantly gametocytic infections in late summer and fall and transmitted P. sasai to at least 80% of the hatchling cohort, beginning within the first few days of life, producing parasitemias at barely detectable levels.
