Abstract

Two new species of Eimeria, E. megaresidua and E. longaspora, are described from the common American newt, Notopthalmus viridescens. The hosts were from the vicinity of Douglas Lake in Northern Michigan. Observations of time of sporulation of the oocyst relative to host defecation and possible significance of the seasonal distribution of the parasites are discussed.
