    Within chelonian hosts, only 61 Eimeria spp. have been described to date, with the majority known from the New World. In the past decade we examined samples from wild-caught geoemydid turtles from Southeast Asia and adjacent areas. Our work revealed considerable diversity of turtles’ coccidia and we describe six new species of Eimeria in this report: Eimeria surinensis sp. n. from Malayemys subtrijuga, Eimeria pangshurae sp. n. from Pangshura sylhetensis residing in India, Eimeria hynekprokopi sp. n. from Vietnamese Cuora, Eimeria zbatagura sp. n. from Batagur baska, Eimeria petrasi sp. n. collected from Cyclemys dentata in the Philippines, Eimeria palawanensis sp. n. from Cyclemys dentata found in the Philippines We also recorded Eimeria arakanensis Široký et Modrý, 2006 from the new host species – Cuora flavomarginata collected in China. Since many chelonians are critically endangered species, their parasite biodiversity will be lost following the collapse of their populations.
