The life cycle of family Eimeriidae is homoxenous, and the life cycle of the family Sarcocystidae is heteroxenous; the sexual stages always develop in the intestine of the definitive host, whereas asexual stages may be present in various tissues of the intermediate hosts, indicating that placement of the mammalian Isospora into family Sarcacysdae is not reasonable.
