Kneallhazia solenopsae (entomopathogen) (J.D. Knell, G.E. Allen & E.I. Hazard) Sokolova & Fuxa 2008

This microsporidium causes a disease of fire ants like the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta) in South - and North America. This pathogen infects fire ant queens, causing reduced oviposition and premature death. The resulting colonies are smaller.
