ABSTRACT
An eugregarine Gregarina vizri Lipa, originally recorded and described from the cereal ground beetle [Zabrus tenebrioides (Goeze)] collected in the Chechnya-Ingushetia (Russian Federation), is reported from the same host insect in Poland. Out of 45 examined adult beetles 19 were parasitized. Morphometric analysis of G. vizri trophozoites and gamonts observed in the digestive tract of host specimens originating from Russian Federation and from Poland showed a significant similarity.
