Dear iNaturalists,

SHSU is seeking data on the occurrence of a specific OE parasite in Monarch butterflies.

About the parasite: LINK -
Ophryocystis elektroscirrha (sometimes abbreviated OE or O.e.[1]) is an obligate, neogregarine parasite that infects monarch (Danaus plexippus) butterflies.

Tis study has concluded but we will keep the project live for purposes of follow-up.

Thanks to everyone for their assistance.

The link for the spore cards is sending it to a site that says it doesn't exist. Help?
