New species of Myxosporea from frogs and resurrection of the genus Cystodiscus Lutz, 1889 for species with myxospores in gallbladders of amphibians.
myxospores were observed on the caudal fins and kidneys of naturally infected channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus).
Later, the sporangioles burst, and the released myxospores glided in groups toward the walls, where they germinated into rod-shaped vegetative cells.
