Eugregarines are abundant in a great diversity of invertebrates, and yet their relationships with their hosts are subject to controversy and confusion. We tested the effect of the eugregarine, Pyxinia crystalligera, on growth, development, and susceptibility to two Apicomplexa pathogens of the hide beetle, Dermestes maculatus. Heavy infection with eugregarines provided partial protection from two pathogenic members of Apicomplexa, Mattesia trogodermae and Adelina tribolii. Infection with P. crystalligera caused lower weight in beetle larvae, but did not significantly retard pupation or adult emergence. Adelina tribolii infection of Lepidoptera and M. trogodermae infection of D. maculatus are reported for the first time.
