Gregarina niphandrodes (entomopathogen) Clopton et al., 1991

This species of eugregarines parasitises the gut of mealworms, Tenebrio molitor. Rodriguez et al. (2007) artificially infected mealworms with gregarines and compared their biology with uninfected beetles. The average lifespan of infected beetles was significantly reduced, but not their fertility.
