Abstract This case report provides pathologic and confirmatory molecular characterization of an outbreak of bumper car disease caused by the scuticociliate Anophryoides haemophila in American lobster Homarus americanus, from a commercial holding facility in Nova Scotia, Canada. Although sporadically and anecdotally reported to be present in Atlantic Canada, this is the first report detailing observations from a natural outbreak of bumper car disease by gross and microscopic pathology and its positive identification by small subunit rRNA gene sequencing. Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA analysis confirmed that the genotype of the present outbreak isolate is identical to the original isolate of A. haemophila reported from Maine lobsters in 1993..
