Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A new multivalvulid species, Kudoa pagrusi sp. n., was described from the sea bream Pagrus pagrus. The cysts were oval to ellipsoidal and restricted to the cardiac muscles. The mean spore measurements were 7.0 microm in length and 6.4 microm in width as well as in thickness, while the mean polar capsule measurements were 3.7 microm in length and 1.5 microm in width. The ultrastructural features of the present species proved that the spore have four polar capsules with four shell valves that are the main criteria for genus Kudoa.
