Twelve OTUs identified as Blepharisma, Mesodinium, Didinium, Haptoria, uncultured Scuticociliatia, uncultured Peritrichia, Cryptocaryon, Halteria, uncultured Oligotrichia, Oxytricha, Euplotes, and uncultured Choreotrichia had a zero GAST distance, indicating that they were identical to existing sequences in public databases.
The E06_757_MCM2_1 and E06_757_MCM2_2 sequences branched together in both ML and BI analyses in a clade including E06_757_MCM2_1 and E06_757_MCM2_2, Cryptocaryon irritans, and two environmental sequences with 100% bootstrap support and 1.
Our phylogenetic results indicate that the novel species is related to Cryptocaryon irritans.

Syntaxonomical revision of the sclerophyllous woodlands in Central Chile: the Cryptocaryon albae alliance
Aparte estas 3 asociaciones que integraban la alianza Cryptocaryon, anadio a su esquema sintaxonomico otras 4 asociaciones que fisionomicamente podriamos llamar arboleda-arbustedas mediterraneas: el "quillay-litre" (Quillajo-Lithraeetum) que dejo como asociacion provisional ya que no aporto ningun inventario, el "boldo-litre" (Boldo-Lithraeetum), y otras dos formaciones presididas por una cupresacea la una (Austrocedro-Lithraeetum), y una palmacea la otra (Jubaeetum); pero estas otras 4 asociaciones ya las integro en otra alianza: la Lithraeion.
Los bosques de Cryptocaryon en nuestra interpretacion representan un indicador de ombroclima seco (y que puede llegar a subhumedo), aunque se pueden encajar en un macroterritorio donde dominan las estaciones meteorologicas que marcan un nivel semiarido aprovechando topografias y exposiciones favorables.
interpretamos como atribuibles a bosques de Cryptocaryon el Piso de Vegetacion denominado "Bosque esclerofilo mediterraneo costero de Cryptocarya alba y Peumus boldus", y seguramente le seria atribuible el tambien llamado "Bosque esclerofilo mediterraneo costero de Lithraea caustica y Cryptocarya alba"; estos autores cuantifican la superficie asignada a ambos Pisos en 10.
The cryptocaryon parasite burrows into the mucous membranes of warm-water fish and irritates their skin.
Just as they do in the rest of the tropics, cryptocaryon infect many Hawaii fish varieties, including opakapaka, kahala and various snappers and reef fish.
First they want to sequence the genome of cryptocaryon and get a clearer picture of how the parasite infects and affects fish.
