Abstract

Caryospora simplex is reported for the first time from the feces of a captive female Kaznakov’s viper (Vipera kaznakovi) in Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA). Coccidian meronts and gamonts were observed in the intestinal epithelial cells of another female Kaznakov’s viper that died in October 1993.
