Stages obtained from two Asian Babesia gibsoni-isolates cultured in vitro were studied by means of transmission electron microscopy and compared to strains of B. canis cultured in vitro. While the developmental stages of the latter preserved their shape in culture, many of the initially small stages of the B. gibsoni strains grew considerably and often looked rather similar to B. canis.
