This paper deals with the morphology and life history of two new species of septate gregarines (Apicomlexa: Sporozoea) under two different genera namely Stylocephatus Ellis,1912 and Didymophyes Stein, 1848. These parasites are Stylocephatus janovyi sp. nov. from Scleron irregulate and Didymophyes berhamporensis sp. nov. from Gymnopleurus parvus (Macl.).
