Abstract: A description of the coccidium Isospora hemidactyli from the house gecko Hemidactylus mabouia, a very common at dwellings in Rio de Janeiro Metropolitan Region, was made in this study. Histograms and linear regression were made for this species and determined the homogeneity of these oocysts despite of large range. Besides it, polysporocystid oocysts also were recovered from feces of the H. mabouia house gecko and they were similar to those described previously as the genus Adelina. This species should be para… Show more

“…The large number of sporocysts seen in the current sample, and their large size suggest that their most likely identity is an unidentified adeleid coccidian from an invertebrate host ingested by the reptile. This phenomenon has been described previously (Berto et al 2008) and has been the source of previous misidentifications.…”

“…recovered from different host species. For this, the software Microsoft® Excel 2007 was used to calculate the mean, variance, degree of freedom and p value (Gomez et al 1982, Sampaio 2002, Berto et al 2008c; (3) linear regression aimed to assess measures of width on length of Isospora sp. oocysts.…”

“…The coccidia of the Adeleidae Family are parasitic and/or symbiotic organisms of invertebrates, yet they are found in the digestive tract of vertebrate hosts through the ingestion of these invertebrates (BERTO et al, 2010). The insectivorous habit of some vertebrates is essential to the proliferation of these protozoa, as they are dependent on the feeding habits of the animals that prey on them and guarantee their dispersal (LOPES et al, 2013).…”

“…In the feces of a cat in Santa Maria (RS), and a pampas fox, in Cachoeira do Sul (RS), were found two species of adeleidae menbers (GRESSLER et al, 2009), possibly as a result of diet of these animals, including arthropods. Dipterous (MILUTINOVIĆ et al, 1995), grasshoppers, cockroaches, crickets, and beetles (BERTO et al, 2010), hunted or accidentally ingested, have been described parasitized by coccidia of the Adeleidae Family. Due to the high resistance in the wall of oocystes and sporocystes of Coccidia, they do not lose their morphological characteristics when passing though the intestinal tract and being eliminated in the feces of non-host omnivores and carnivores, favoring their survival in the environment.…”
