Abstract

Protomagalhaensia granulosae Peregrine, 1970, is redescribed from the type host, the discoid cockroach, Blaberus discoidalis. Complete morphometric data on all life cycle stages is presented, and P. granulosae is distinguished from other species in the genus and stabilized with the deposition of new voucher specimen material. Species of Protomagalhaensia are distinguished by differences in relative metric ratios, morphology of oocysts, and by relative metric ratios of mature gamonts in association.
