Abstract: A new microsporidian parasite of Phyllotreta undulata was recorded in Turkey. Fresh spores are oval, 3.85 ± 0.69 µm (2.0-4.75) in length and 2.04 ± 0.23 µm (1.90-2.40) in width (n = 50). The spores are uninucleated. As there were insufficient data available on the complete life cycle of the parasite, it could not be identified at species level.
Keywords: microsporidian parasite, Phyllotreta undulata, Chrysomelidae
