      4. Remarks: De Vos (1970) was able to establish successful infections in Arvicanthis niloticus (Nile rat - Muridae), Mastomys natalensis (syn. Praomys natalensis) (Multimammate rat - Muridae), Mus musculus (House mouse - Muridae), Mystromys albicaudatus (White-tailed rat - Muridae), Otomys irroratus (Vlei rat - Muridae), Rattus norvegicus (Norwegian rat - Muridae), and Rhabdomys pumilio (Striped mouse - Muridae). Couch et al. (2001) found what appeared to be oocysts of E. chinchillae in a sympatric host, the plains vizcacha (L. maximus) from Argentina. But because it was a different host that they examined and because the host was from a different continent, they declined to say that it was E. chinchillae or name it as a new species. They have called it E. c.f. chinchillae until further molecular studies can be done to determine if the oocysts they found were indeed E. chinchillae oocysts.
