First report of Myxobolus neurofontinalis (Bivalvulida: Myxobolidae) infecting anadromous Brook Trout from Prince Edward Island, Canada

This study documents Myxobolus neurofontinalis outside of North Carolina for the first time and, given the morphological similarities to Myxobolus cerebralis, the causative agent of salmonid whirling disease, highlights the importance of detailed morphological diagnosis coupled with nucleotide sequence data to myxozoan disease diagnostics.
