Fallisia arabica sp.n. is described from peripheral blood smears of the skink lizard, Scincus hemprichii for the first time from Jazan Province in the southwest of Saudi Arabia. Schizogony and gametogony take place within neutrophils in the peripheral blood of the host. Mature schizont is rosette shaped 17.5?4.1x17.0?3.9μm, with L/W ratio of 1.03(1.02-1.05) μm and produce 24(18-26) merozoites.Young gametocytes are ellipsoidal, 5.5?0.8x3.6?0.5μm, with L/W of 1.53(1.44-1.61) μm. Mature macrogametocytes are ellipsoidal, 9.7?1.2x7.8?1.0μm, with L/W of 1.24(1.21-1.34)μm and microgametocytes are ellipsoidal, 7.0?1.1x6.8?0.9μm.with L/W of 1.03(1.01-1.10)μm.
