Microphotographs of hemococcidian parasites infecting the blood of New World lizard hosts. Every pair of microphotographs corresponds to one specific haplotype as follows: a, b and c, d: SO1 and SO2 in Sceloporus occidentalis, respectively; e, f; g, h; and i, j: US1, US3 and US4 in U. stansburiana, respectively; i free sporozoite in the blood of U. stansburiana; k, l: LP1 in L. pictus; m, n: DD in one lymphocyte (m) and one erythrocyte (n) of D. dorsalis; o, p Lankesterella sp. Lank_anocar in polymorphonuclear leukocytes of A. carolinensis. Arrows indicate RB in the sporozoites. All pictures were made at the same scale. Scale-bar: 10 μm
