morphological and molecular characterization of eimeria haematodi, coccidian parasite (apicomplexa: eimeriidae) in a rainbow lorikeet (trichoglossus haematodus).eimeria haematodi was first described in 1977 from the rainbow lorikeet (trichoglossus haematodus) in papua new guinea. in the present study, we re-describe this coccidian species morphologically and molecularly from a rainbow lorikeet bird in western australia (wa). the oocysts were ovoid to slightly piriform and measured 28.5-37.8 by 25.8-33.0 µm (33.3 by 28.1 µm). oocyst wall was approximately 1.5 µm thick and bilayered. micropyle (5-7 µm) and oocyst residuum (8.0-10.0 µm) present; polar gran ...201525795281
eimeria haematodi sp. n. (protozoa: eimeriidae) from the rainbow lorikeet, trichoglossus haematodus, in papua new guinea.eimeria haematodi sp. n. is described from the rainbow lorikeet, trichoglossus haematodus, in papua new guinea. oocysts ovoid to slightly pyriform, and measured 24.7 to 40.0 by 20.8 to 35.0 micronm (32.3 by 27.6 micronm). oocyst wall approximately 1.5 micronm thick and two-layered. micropyle (5 to 7 micronm) and oocyst residuum (10 to 12 micron) present; polar granule absent. sporocysts ellipsoidal, 12.0 to 17.0 by 7.9 to 9.8 micronm (13.3 by 8.4 micronm), with thin convex stieda body, and granu ...1977859078
