Entamoeba moshkovskii

Ent·a·moe·ba mosh·kov·'ski·i

a species of ameba very similar to Entamoeba histolytica, probably not infective in humans, but a cause of diagnostic difficulties because it has been recovered from human sewage and may be responsible for false-positive results in tests of sewage plant effluents.
