Abstract: Sphaerospora danubialis sp. n. is a common parasite of striped ruffe (Gymnocephalus schraetzer), ruffe (G. cernua) and pikeperch (Stizostedion lucioperca) of the River Danube. Its spores inhabiting the renal tubules morphologically differ from those of S. markewitschi and S. pectinacea, the already known sphaerospores of freshwater percids. Besides sporogonic stages in the renal tubules, presporogonic stages in the blood were found in striped ruffe.
