  1. de Pinho I, Rodrigues M, Silva L, Lopes B, Oliveira M, Ferreira M, et al. Characterization and Distribution of Isospora sabiai N. SP. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Thrushes Turdus spp. (Passeriformes: Turdidae) from Brazil. J Parasitol. 2017;103:285-291 pubmed publisher
    ..This is the seventh isosporoid coccidian reported from New World turdids. ..
  2. Da Silva L, Rodrigues M, Lopes B, Berto B, Luz H, Ferreira I, et al. A new coccidian, Isospora parnaitatiaiensis n. sp. (Apicomplexa, Eimeriidae), from the white-shouldered fire-eye Pyriglena leucoptera (Passeriformes, Thamnophilidae) from South America. Parasitol Res. 2016;115:745-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Sporocyst residuum is present, usually as a cluster of numerous granules. Sporozoites are vermiform with two refractile bodies and a nucleus. This is the second isosporoid coccidian described from antbirds (Thamnophilidae). ..
  3. Rodrigues M, Da Silva L, Lopes B, Berto B, Luz H, Ferreira I, et al. A new species of Isospora Schneider, 1881 (Apicomplexa: Eimeiriidae) from the grey-hooded attila Attila rufus Vieillot, 1819 (Passeriformes: Tyrannidae) on the Marambaia island, Brazil. Zootaxa. 2015;4034:193-6 pubmed publisher
    ..This species has a wide distribution and their population trends appear to be stable; therefore, it is least concern according to IUCN (2015) criteria. ..

    ..The application of line regressions and ANOVA provided a means for the identification of these species. Finally, the current work proposes a dichotomous key to assist in the morphologic identification of bovine Eimeria spp. oocysts. ..
  5. Da Silva L, Rodrigues M, de Pinho I, do Bomfim Lopes B, Luz H, Ferreira I, et al. Some remarks on the distribution and dispersion of Coccidia from icterid birds in South America: Isospora guaxi n. sp. and Isospora bellicosa Upton, Stamper & Whitaker, 1995 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the red-rumped cacique Cacicus haemorrhou. Syst Parasitol. 2017;94:151-157 pubmed publisher
    ..haemorrhous. Therefore, in conclusion, this current study reveals the dispersion of coccidia from Icteridae across the Andes Mountains, besides describing the sixth isosporoid coccidium infecting an icterid bird. ..
