Abstract

Isospora jaracimrmani Modrý and Koudela is reported for the second time from the Yemen chameleon, Chamaeleo calyptratus. During November 1992, a captive C. calyptratus housed at the Dallas Zoo, Dallas County, Texas, U.S.A., was found to be passing oocysts of I. jaracimrmani. The original description of I. jaracimrmani was based on 18/43 (42%) captive specimens of C. calyptratus from the Czech Republic. This is the first time I. jaracimrmani has been reported from the United States. Comparative measurements and a photomicrograph of our isolate are included.
