In a previous study on the parasites of cultured rock bream (Oplegnathus fasciatus), we reported the discovery of a new species, Ceratomyxa oplegnathus, obtained from the gallbladder. In the present study, we found another Ceratomyxa species, C. sparusaurati, also from the gallbladder of rock bream. The morphological and ultrastructural characteristics of C. sparusaurati were investigated using light and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
