Phototypes of sporulated oocysts of Eimeria macyi demonstrated on routine centrifugal fecal flotation using Sheather’s saturated sugar solution. The fecal sample was aged 7 days in 2.5% potassium dichromate at ambient room temperature (~23 C). File naming convention is the species name, followed by what is depicted, the microscope objective at which the image was taken, and the number. Numbers with X_1 and X_2 denote two planes of focus of the same oocysts to demonstrate other sporocysts within.
