Further parasites of the family garniidae (Coccidiia: Haemosporidiiea) in Brazilian lizards. Fallisia effusa gen.nov., sp.nov. and Fallisia modesta gen.nov., sp.nov
Shaw, Jeffrey Jon
Fallisia effusa gen.nov., sp.nov. (Haemosporidüdea: Garniidae) is described iI;L the teiid lizard, N eusticurus bicarinatus, from Pará State, north Brazil. Schizogony and gametogony both take place within thrombocytes and white cells of the peripheral blood. There is no development in the red blood cells, by which character the organism is difIerentiated from Garnia, the other known genus within the family. Another species, FaUisiamodesta gen.nov., sp.nov., is described in the iguanid lizard, Tropidurus torquatus hispidus, algo from Pará, Brazil. It is distinguished from F. effusa by its development principally in the lymphocytes, as opposed to the thrombocytes. There are other, striking morphological differences between the two species. It is recommended that great care is needed in the interpretation of so-called 'exo-erythrocytic stages' of saurian plasmodia, which may well really belong to members of the Garniidae, in mixed infections.
