|Title:||TWO NEW EIMERIA SPECIES (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) FROM THE YELLOW-CROWNED AMAZON AMAZONA OCHROCEPHALA (AVES: PSITTACIDAE) IN BRAZIL|
|Abstract:||In this study, we describe 2 new species of Eimeria associated with the yellow-crowned Amazon Amazona ochrocephala. Eimeria amazonae n. sp. has bilayered, ellipsoidal, and smooth oocysts that measure 48.9 x 36.2 mu m; the length/width ratio is 1.35. The micropyle and oocyst residuum are both absent, but the polar granule is present. Ovoidal sporocysts are 22.2 x 11.9 mu m. Stieda and sub-Stieda bodies and sporocyst residuum are present. The 2 elongate sporozoites are curved and measure 18.1 x 3.4 mu m; both have 2 refractile bodies. Eimeria ochrocephalae n. sp. has bilayered, ellipsoidal, and smooth oocysts that measure 43.8 X 27.7 mu m; the length/width ratio is 1.58. The micropyle and oocyst residuum are absent, but the polar granule is present; ovoidal sporocysts are 20.6 x 10.1 mu m. Stieda and sub-Stieda bodies and sporocyst residuum are present; 2 elongate and curved sporozoites are 15.8 X 3.4 mu m, each of which has 2 refractile bodies.|
