They possess a complex of distinctive ring like tubular and filamentous organelles at the apical end visible only under the electron microscope. This phylum includes the gregarines which are extracellular parasites of insects, annelids and other worms and the coccidians that are intracellular parasites of blood cells of vertebrates and invertebrates: The most familiar coccidian is Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria.
