Mi·cro·spor·a

(mī'krō-spōr'ă),
A protozoan phylum, which includes the genera Nosema and Encephalitozoon, is characterized by the presence of unicellular spores with an imperforate wall and an extrusion apparatus having a polar tube and a polar cap; mitochondria are absent. They are intracellular parasites of invertebrates and lower vertebrates, with rare examples in higher vertebrates.
