AbstractWe used a flotation technique to survey fecal samples from 27 Przewalski's gazelles (Procapra przewalskii Buchner, 1891) for intestinal parasites. Samples were collected from the Qinghai Lake region, Qinghai-Tibet plateau, China, in April 2015. We report parasites belonging to two nematode (Nematodirus, Marshallagia) genera and one apicomplexan (Eimeria) genus; one of the latter was a new species from the critically endangered Przewalski's gazelle. Sporulated oocysts of the new eimerian were spheroidal; they had a thick, outer wall without a micropyle, but with a distinct polar granule and an oocyst residuum. Oocysts measured a mean of 18.6(+/- 0.8) x17.3(+/- 0.9) mu m in length and width, with a mean 1.1(+/- 0.1) length/width ratio and a spheroidal oocyst residuum that had a mean width of 2.0(+/- 0.7) mu m. Sporocysts were ovoid, measuring a mean of 9.4(+/- 0.6) x5.5(+/- 0.5) mu m in length and width, with a mean 1.7(+/- 0.2) length/width ratio. A Stieda body and sporocyst residuum were present, but a substieda body was absent. Sporozoites each had a small anterior refractile body and a larger, posterior refractile body; a small nucleus was visible between them.
