Eimeria crocidurae Galli-Valerio,
Original host: Crocidura
russula (Hermann, 1780) (Syn. C. aranea [?]),
Greater white-toothed shrew.
Remarks: This description was
published in a short paragraph with no figure. Oocysts were
subspheroid, 16 x 12.7 with a very small micropyle and
sporocysts were ovoid, 7.5 x 6. No other structural or
qualitative information was given for the sporulated oocyst.
There also was great confusion about the correct identity of the
host as discussed by Levine and Ivens (1979). For these reasons,
this species must be regarded as a species inquirendae.
