A parasite of the dredge oyster Ostrea chilensis Philippi, previously known as Bonamia sp., was recently described and named Bonamia exitiosus, based on ultrastructural and molecular evidence. The rules governing the names of organisms require correspondence of gender, and the name must be changed from B. exitiosus to B. exitiosa.
