a malaria parasite of the white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and its relation with known species of plasmodium in other ungulates.with the exception of the human malaria parasites, the mammalian species of plasmodium have a fairly restricted geographical distribution, while the incidence of the infection in the different orders of mammals is patchy. a few species have been described in ungulates in the old world tropics, but plasmodium odocoilei sp.nov. of the white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) of texas is the first example to be found in the new world. it was discovered in an adult specimen that had had its spleen ...19806102388
hidden in plain sight: cryptic and endemic malaria parasites in north american white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus).malaria parasites of the genus plasmodium are diverse in mammal hosts, infecting five mammalian orders in the old world, but were long considered absent from the diverse deer family (cervidae) and from new world mammals. there was a description of a plasmodium parasite infecting a single splenectomized white-tailed deer (wtd; odocoileus virginianus) in 1967 but none have been reported since, which has proven a challenge to our understanding of malaria parasite biogeography. using both microscopy ...201626989785
