An order of sporozoan protozoa (subclass Piroplasmia, class Sporozoea) consisting of the families Habesiidae, Theileriidae, and Dactylosomatidae; includes heteroxenous tick-borne blood parasites of vertebrates with reduced apical complex, lacking spores, and with asexual reproduction by binary fission or schizogony.

Twenty-two species were utilized in this study including 20 apicomplexans representing five major lineages (Cryptosporidia, Coccidia, Piroplasmida, and Plasmodium spp., as well as the deep branching apicomplexan, Gregarina niphandrodes) (Supplementary Table 1 available online at https://doi.org/10.1155/2017/1707231).
Sugar transporter copy number varies the most within the Piroplasmida species.
The variable number of sugar transporters observed in apicomplexans especially in Piroplasmida species is not the result of missing annotation.

The causal agent of human babesiosis, Babesia microti (Apicomplexa: Piroplasmida), is a protozoan blood parasite that is transmitted in nature by the bite of an infected tick.
A genus of protozoa of the order Piroplasmida, named for Victor Babes (1854-1926), a Romanian bacteriologist who discovered a parasitic sporozoon in ticks in 1885.
The chosen primers corresponded to the sequences of most Piroplasmida species (including those listed above) but significantly differed from those of P.
