We describe a new species of myxosporidan, Myxobolus latipinnacola, infecting the gallbladder of the sailfin molly, Poecilia latipinna (Lesueur). The polysporous cysts located in the wall of the gallbladder are nearly spherical, about 59 μm in diameter. Spores are ellipsoidal in front view, and approximately lenticular in side view. Fresh solitary spores in bile measure 13.1 μm in length, 8.6 μm in width and 6.7 μm in thickness, with polar filaments 17.3 μm.
