Parasitological studies in British Honduras III - Some coccidial parasites of mammals
I. Four new species of Eimeria are described from mammals of the EI Caro District, British Honduras, Central Arnerica. They are: Eimeria orthogeomyos r. nov., from the pocket-gopher, Orthogeomys grandis scalops (Rodentia, Geomyidae)j E. poli sr. nov., from the kinkajou, Patos flavus (Carnivora, Procyonidae)j E. tamanduae sr. nov., from the lesser ant-eater, Tamandua tetradactyla (Edentata, Myrmacophagidae)j and E. rhynchonycteridis sr. nov., from the Brazilian long-nosed bat, Rhynchonycteris naso (Chiroptera, Emballonuridae ). 2. Eimeria sciurorum Galli-Valerio, 1922, has been encountered in the New World squirrel, Sciurus aureogaster hypopyrrhus (Rodentia, Sciuridae), from the garoe locality. Previous records of the parasite arrear to be limited to infections in the European squirrel, S. vulgaris. time. 259 The endogenous development, in the small intestine, is described for the first 3. Oocysts of two different coccidial parasites were found in faeces from a sick ocelot, Felis pardalis. One of them is probably Isospora felis, the other failed to sporulate and remains unidentified. 4. Oocysts were encountered in faeces from a single specimen of the 'vesper-rat', Nyctomys sumichrasti (Rodentia, Cricetidae). No development was seen after maintenance of the material for one week, and the parasite remains unidentified.
