Abstract

In a recent survey in Oklahoma (USA), 52 free-ranging coyotes were examined for the presence of sarcocysts. Two of these coyotes were found infected with sarcocysts in skeletal muscle. By light microscopy, the cyst wall was thin and smooth. Ultrastructurally, the cyst wall had minute villar protrusions. The sarcocysts were 14.4 to 50.4 μm wide and 46.8 to 99 μm long. This is the first report of Sarcocystis sp. sarcocysts in the skeletal muscle of coyotes.
