Abstract Several cases of haplosporidan infection have been detected recently in PacifiC oysters Crassostrea gigas from Etang de Thau, France. The ultrastructure of the spore, including the surface ornamentation, is described and appears similar to thal of Haplospondium costale. The taxonomie implications of these findings are discussed.
