    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    This study describes the fine structure and reproduction of tachyzoites of Hammondia heydorni (isolate Berlin 1996) after in vitro cultivation of stages isolated from serial passages between dogs and various intermediate hosts such as mice, rats, guinea pigs, jirds, knock-out mice, goats and sheep. The tachyzoites are identical with respect to their ultrastructural features to the corresponding stages of the NC-1-strain of Neospora caninum. This fact conforms with other already published data and underlines our opinion that the recently redescribed N. caninum Dubey et al. 2002 is a synonym of the previously described H. heydorni (Tadros and Laarman 1976) Dubey 1977.
