Abstract

The Myxosporidia are protozoan parasites which infect various/ 7 lower groups of vertebrates, and which cause several serious epidemic diseases of fishes (Kudo, 1920, 1939). The purpose of the present papers is to describe some of the species of Myxosporidia which have been found parasitizing fishes of the Okoboji region. The present study includes only the Myxosporidia found on the gills. The internal organs were also examined, but the results of these examinations are reported in a separate paper (Otto and Jahn, 1943).
