Taxonomy: f. Eimeriidae
Animal: Cyclospora cayetanensis 4 08.jpg
Cyclospora cayetanensis 8-10 microns oocysts in faecal preparation stained with Iodine. These unsporulated oocysts take 5 -13 days to mature to contain 2 sporocysts containing 2 sporozoites each. They stain from light pink to deep red in the modified acid fast stain. If seen in a trichrome stained smear, the oocysts appear as clear, round, somewhat wrinkled objects. It is important to measure the oocysts to confirm their identity. They were previously known as CLBs.
