Eimeria Scrofae

Host: Domestic pig.

Location: Unknown. Oocysts found in feces.

Geographic Distribution: Europe (Switzerland).

Prevalence: Unknown.

Morphology: This species has been described only by Galli-Valerio (1935). The oocysts are cylindroid, with one end slightly flattened, and measure 24 by 15 u. There is a distinct micropyle. Oocyst and sporocyst residua are absent. The sporont is finely granular. Pellerdy (1949) considered this a rather doubtful species resembling E. debliecki. However, the absence of a sporocyst residuum and presence of a micropyle differentiate it from this species.

Life Cycle: Unknown.

Pathogenesis: Unknown.
