further characterisation of two eimeria species (eimeria quokka and eimeria setonicis) in quokkas (setonix brachyurus).the identification and characterisation of novel eimeria species has largely been based on sporulated oocyst and sporocyst morphology, the host species and the geographical range. variation in the size and shape of eimeria oocysts across their host range however, make the identification and characterisation of novel species using traditional methodologies alone problematic. the use of molecular markers and phylogenetic analysis has greatly advanced our ability to characterise eimeria species and ...201424508502
eimeria collieie n. sp. (apicomplexa:eimeriidae) from the western long-necked turtle (chelodina colliei).a new species, eimeria collieie n. sp., is described from the western long-necked turtle (chelodina colliei). sporulated oocysts (n = 35) are spherical to subspherical, with colourless single layer oocyst wall, 0.6 ± 0.2 (0.4-0.7) µm thick. oocyst with elongated ellipsoid sporocysts. oocyst length, 29.8 ± 0.4 (28.2-31.0) µm; oocyst width, 29.4 ± 0.3 (28.0-30.8) µm; oocyst length/width (l/w) ratio, 1.0 ± 0.03 (1.0-1.05). micropyle, oocyst residuum and polar granule were absent. sporocysts with sp ...201525917644
