Porosporidae is a family of parasitic alveolates of the phylum Apicomplexia

Taxonomy

This family has 3 genera - Pachyporospora, Porospora and Nematopsis - and 37 species.

The members of this family are distinguished from the other septate gregarines by having a digenic (two host) life cycle.

History

This taxon was created in 1899 by Labbé.[1]

Description

The species in this family are heteroxenous, meaning they live in two separate hosts during their life cycle. The two host species involved in their life cycle are a crustacean and a mollusc. The life cycle involves vegetative development in digestive tract of a decapod crustacean and sporogony in the connective tissue of a lamellibranch mollusc.
