Cytoplasmic inclusions attributed to “Candidatus Anaplasma sphenisci” in the erythrocytes of an African penguin (Spheniscus demersus). Modified Wright-Giemsa stain. Inclusions ranged in size from small dots (a, b) to pleomorphic structures that were smaller than the host cell nucleus (c-l) and were found at a polar (a, e-h), subpolar (b, i-l) or median position (c, d), at times touching the host cell outer margins (c-e, g-k) or the host cell nucleus (l). Scale-bar: 5 μm
