Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract ABSTRACT: A new species of coccidian (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) is described from the feces of a western hognose snake Heterodon nasicus (Serpentes: Xenodontidae) collected from Texas, and housed in the collection of the Zoological Society of London. Oocysts of Eimeria mchenryi n.sp. are cylindrical, 35.0 + SD 1.4 (32 - 37) x 17.0 + 0.7 (16 - 18) μm; the shape index (length/width) is 2.05. A micropyle, oocyst residuum, and polar granule are absent. Sporocysts are sub-spherical 9.3 (7 - 11.5) x 7.7 (6 - 9) μm, with a shape index of 1.2. There is a sporocyst residuum, but the new species is lacking Stieda bodies. The new species is distinct from those previously named from the Xenodontidae and the allied family, Colubridae.
