Two new species of Caryospora (Apicomplexa) from snakes in Cameroon, with redescriptions of two coccidians from Hemidactylus mabouia (Gekkonidae).
This represents the first coccidian to be described from a member of the family Helodermatidae.
Comparisons were made with measurements of other coccidians reported previously from turtles (McAllister and Upton, 1989) and a description follows of the new species we observed.
A new species of coccidian is described from a Texas river cooter, Pseudemys texana, from north-central Texas.
