Preliminary observations of the green cryptoendolithic layer in the sandstone from elevations of 200 m below sea level near Wadi Mujib, the Dead Sea area, Jordan, revealed coccoid
cyanobacteria in south-facing slopes and coccoid
and filamentous cyanobacteria in north-facing sandstones.
macrophylla around the world are 6 other species of coccoids
: Hemilecanium imbricans (Green) (Hemiptera: Coccidae); Chrysomphalus dictyospermi (Morgan), Hemiberlesia cyanophylli (Signoret), Ischnaspis longirostris (Signoret) (Diaspididae); Crypticerya multicicatrices Kondo & Unruh (Monophlebidae); and Dysmicoccus nesophilus Williams & Watson (Pseudococcidae).
hosts recorded in the literature are secondary hosts (Hayat 1998).
In some areas, the epidermis was multifocally ulcerated and covered with a fibrinoheterophilic infiltrate with numerous yeasts and pseudohyphae consistent with Candida species as well as colonies of coccoid
bacteria (Fig 4).
The etiologic agent of canine ehrlichiosis, the rickettsia Ehrlichia canis, is a small pleomorphic gram-negative coccoid
bacteria that parasitizes circulating monocytes intracytoplasmically in clusters of organisms called morulae.
Species of the genus Rhodococcus (order Actinomycetales, family Nocardiaceae) are aerobic, gram-positive, partially acid-fast, coccoid
to rod-shaped bacteria (9).
2C), but they were coccoid
and densely packed in the bacteriocytes of the posterior trophosome region (Fig.
Bacterial growth is the most distinctive texture and appears as multiple layers of irregular morphology displaying microscopic shrub-like colonies, and filamentous and coccoid
microbial mat depositions.
They are ubiquitous, coccoid
, Gram-positive, obligate anaerobes and were first documented in the human gastrointestinal tract (GOODSIR, 1842).
Various species of lactobacilli and anaerobic coccoid
bacteria were established as the predominant normal flora.
Branching filamentous Grampositive organisms with rows of coccoid
cells, transversely and horizontally, characteristic of Dermatophilus congolensis were observed from direct smear (Fig.
Bordetella holmesii, a small gram-negative coccoid
bacillus that was first reported in 1995 (7), was originally identified as a member of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nonoxidizer group 2.
