Myxosoma intestinalis N. Sp. (protozoa, myxosporidia) from the gut epithelium of the estuarine fish,Mugil waigensis quoy & gaimard

Abstract

A new histozoic species of Myxosporidia,Myxosoma intestinalis inhabiting the gut epithelium ofMugil waigensis Quoy and Gaimard is described. This is the first record of a species ofMyxosoma from an Indian fish and also a first record of a myxosporidian fromMugil waigensis.
