Diagnosis

Chytriodinium like parasite, infecting egg still in sac fram Atlantic Ocean. Egg sac contains 5 or more eggs, with about 40-60 µm dimater. Infected eggs showed one to several sporangia, with 50-70 µm of diameter (multiple infections frequent). A chain of dinospores was coiled within a fine hyaline membrane of the sporangium. The sporangium remained attached to the copepod egg and more than 60 dinospores were released when the membrane was lysed. Dinospores are about 8-9 µm long.

Body_trophont_length: 50-70 µm
Body_spores_length: 8-9 µm

Sequence_SSU_ITS_LSU: KM245125, KM245126, KM245127, KM245128, KM245129
