Abstract: Two new Myxobolus (Myxosporea, Myxozoa) species (M. karuni sp. n. and M. persicus sp. n.) are described from the gills of Barbus grypus collected from River Karun (Persian Gulf water system). The two species differ from each other in location and morphology. Until plasmodia of M karuni start their development in the blood vessels of the primary gill filaments, and the cysts are located in the central parts of the filaments free from respiratory plates, plasmodia of M. persicus are formed under the respiratory epithelium of the secondary gill lamellae and their cysts grow around the capillaries. In Barbus grypus the two Myxosporea usually occurred in mixed infection, while in Barbus sharpeyi and B. luteus only M. persicus sp. n. was found.
