Much of Africa.
Clinical features and pathological findings
Host species infected by this paraiste include Agama colonorum.
Infection with P. agamae induces anaemia in its host which in turn reduces running stamina. Infection with P. agamae alone does not reduce the number of eggs laid by the females but simultaneous coinfection with P. giganteum may result in a reduction in the clutch size by two thirds.
Fever occurs but is irregular.
