The microsporidium Toxospora volgae, new genus new species from Chironomidae larvae of the genus Corynoneura



The microsporidium Toxospora volgae, new genus new species from Chironomidae larvae of the genus Corynoneura



Parazitologiya (St Petersburg) 27(2): 148-154



The ultrastructure of the octosporous microsporidium Toxopora volgae gen. n., sp. n. is studied. In the beginning of sporogony there is diplocaryon. Stages of sporogony are limited by thin and fragile envelope of the sporophorous vesicle. The C-from, 0.-0.8 times 6-8 mm l on spores have one elongated nucleus, a layered exospore and a polar tube of unusual construction. The polaroplast consists of two parts - anterior closely paked lamellae and posterior tube/chambered. The microsporidium is compared to Toxoglugea microsporidia. The taxonomic relations between the genera Toxoglugea and Toxospora are discussed.
