Abstract: Five new myxosporean species belonging to three different genera were described from the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in Bahr Shebin, Nile Tributary, Nile Delta, Egypt. These species are: Zschokkella nilei sp. n., Ortholinea africanus sp. n., Triangula egyptica sp. n., Myxobolus fomenai sp. n., and Myxobolus branchiophilus sp. n. Morphometry, light microscopy, and hand drawing of mature spores and plasmodia were presented for each species.
