Abstract

Myxobolus gayerae sp. n. and M. leuciscini González-Lanza & Alvarez-Pellitero, 1985 (Myxozoa: Myxobolidae) have been described and re-described from European chub Leuciscus cephalus L. from the Hungarian stretch of the river Danube. The ellipsoidal Plasmodia of M. gayerae sp. n. were found in the mucosa of the intestinal wall, whereas the large, elongated plasmodia of M. leuciscini infected the afferent arteries of the gill filaments. The spores of M. gayerae sp. n. are relatively large, slightly oval and almost rectangular in shape. On the basis of spore morphology and 18S rDNA sequences, the most similar species was M. cycloides Gurley, 1893, but the 2 species differed in host and tissue tropism as well as in the size of the spores. The spores of M. leuciscini from L. cephalus, having no intercapsular appendix or occasionally a very small one, showed a high morphological similarity to spores collected from L. cephalus cabeda, Chondrostoma polylepis and Rutilus arcasi in Spain and described as M. leuciscini González-Lanza & Alvarez-Pellitero, 1985.
