Diagnosis

Diagnosis_Genus: Euduboscquella Coats & Bachvaroff 2012. Euduboscquellidae with trophont episome as disc-shaped shield bordered by a perinematic ring. Lamina pharyngea extending from perinematic ring into trophont cytoplasm. Food vacuole formed as trophont emerges from host giving rise to extracellular tomont. Multiple spore morphotypes possible, including dinokont and non-dinokont cells. Individual infections producing only one type of spore.

Euduboscquella parasites infecting Favella arcuata from Assawoman Bay, MD.
Undescribed species of Euduboscquella, infecting Favella arcuata. Known from SSU and ITS sequence from 4 individual infected host cells (Bachvaroff et al. 2012). Accession number: JN934989.
A 2,955-base amplicon from the SSU to the LSU was generated and cloned from two individual loricae from the same site collected 1 week apart. Six clones were sequenced from each individual. The sequences differed by zero bases or one base in ITS1, one to six bases in ITS2, and two bases in the LSU, with a total of nine and six polymorphic sites in ITS-to-LSU sequences from these two individuals.

 

Etymology

Genus name is derived from the Greek eu- (= well, normal) and the genus name Duboscquella. The combination is intended to imply organisms truly related to the parasite studied by Duboscq and Collin (1910).
 

Type species
