dc.description.abstractObservations were made on Blastocystis isolated from the sea-snake, Lapemis hardwickii. Exponential growth of the organism was observed between 2 and 4 days of culture. Vacuolated, amoeboid and granular forms were observed in cultures, similar to B. hominis. The optimal growth temperature for the sea-snake Blastocystis was 24°C compared with 37°C for B. hominis. The karyotypic patterns of B. hominis and the sea-snake Blastocystis were studied in the clamped homogeneous electric field (CHEF) technique was found to be different. Based on the above differences, the sea-snake Blastocystis was designated as Blastocystis lapemi sp. nov.
