Goussia ethmalotis n.sp. (Apicomplexa: Sporozoea), a coccidian parasite of the West African Shad, Ethmalosa fimbriata Bowditch 1825, (Pisces: Clupeidae)
Goussia ethmalotis n.sp. is described from the liver of E. fimbriata caught in the Cross River Estuary, Nigeria. The oocysts are 30 to 37 micro m, regular, spherical and the oocyst residuum is absent. The sporocysts are 12 micro m (10-13 micro ) x 6.5 micro m (6 micro m to 8 micro m) with a dehiscence suture line, sporocyst residuum absent. The sporozoites are reflexed at both ends, arranged crosswise like the letter X.
