This tree diagram shows the relationships between several groups of organisms.
The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right.
You can click on the root to travel down the Tree of Life all the way to the root of all Life, and you can click on the names of descendent subgroups to travel up the Tree of Life all the way to individual species.

With the transfer of the family Dactylosomatidae to the suborder Eimeriorina (see Boulard et al., 1982), the genera Haemohormidium and Sauroplasma are left without a valid family. Therefore, the family Haemohormidiidae was established to accommodate them.
Family Haemohormidiidae Levine, 1984
Merogony present and merozoites are formed by binary fission or by schizogony. Hosts are fish, reptiles, and birds. Vectors as well as other stages are unknown.
