Haemosporidiasina (Haemosporidia) is a subclass of apicomplexans described by Jacques Euzéby in 1988.[1] The taxon is very similar to the taxon of Aconoidasida.


Haemosporidiasina is divided into 2 orders:

Order Chromatorida (with pigmented intraerythrocytic parasites)

Suborder Laveraniina

Order Achromatorida (with non-pigmented intraerythrocytic parasites)

Suborder Babesiina includes agents of piroplasmosis sensu stricto

Suborder Theileriina includes parasites of erythrocytes and diverse white blood cells with sexual reproduction by exoerythrocytic or by exo- and endoerythrocytic schizogony.
