A new species of Myxosporea, Henneguya loreotoensis n. sp. is described parasitizing the gill filaments from 17 of 35 specimens (48.5%) of Corydoras leucomelas (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae) caught in the Nanay River, near village Ninarumi, in the Loreto state, Peru. Mature spores were ellipsoidal in shape from the frontal view, measuring 36.2 +/- 0.1 mu m (36.1-36.3) in total length, 14.3 +/- 0.1 mu m (14.2-14.4) in body length, 5.1 +/- 0.1 mu m (4.9-5.3) in width and 21.9 +/- 0.1 mu m (21.8-22.0) in the caudal process. The two polar capsules were symmetrical and elongated, measuring 5.1 +/- 0.1 mu m (4.9-5.3) in length and 2.4 +/- 0.2 mu m (2.1-2.7) in width, containing a polar filament with five coils arranged obliquely to the longitudinal axis. The sporoplasm was binucleate. Partial sequencing of the ssu-rDNA of H. loretoensis n. sp. resulted in a total of 1676 nucleotides, and this sequence did not match any of the myxozoan available in the GenBank. The phylogenetic analysis shows H. loretoensis n. sp. as a sister species of Henneguya paraensis, another amazonian myxozoan parasite of Cichla temensis (Perciformes: Cichlidae). (AU)
