Morgan, U.M., Xiao, L., Monis, P., Fall, A., Irwin, P.J., Fayer, R., Denholm, K.M., Limor, J., Lal, A.A. and Thompson, R.C.A. (2000) Cryptosporidium spp. in domestic dogs: the "dog" genotype. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 66 (5). pp. 2220-2223.

Genetic and phylogenetic characterization of Cryptosporidium isolates at two loci (18S rRNA gene and heat shock gene) from both Australian and United States dogs demonstrated that dog-derived Cryptosporidium isolates had a distinct genotype which is conserved across geographic areas. Phylogenetic analysis provided support for the idea that the 'dog' genotype is, in fact, a valid species.
