High impact information on Pleistophora

  • Certain even-saturated fatty acids were found in a very high proportion: palmitic acid (16:0) represented one-third of total fatty acids in Pleistophora mirandellae [1].
  • Two new species of microsporidia are reported from the Atlantic marine fishes: Pleistophora duodecimae sp. n. from skeletal musculature of the rat-tail, Coryphaenoides nasutus Günther and Glugea capverdensis sp. n. from the intestine, mesentery and ovary of the lantern fish, Myctophum punctatum Rafinesque [2].
