AbstractCaullerya mesnili is a common and virulent parasite of the water flea, Daphnia. It was classified within the Haplosporidia (Rhizaria) for over a century. However, a recent molecular phylogeny based on the 18S rRNA gene suggested it belonged to the Ichthyosporea, a class of protists closely related to animals within the Opisthokonta clade. The exact phylogenetic position of C. mesnili remained uncertain because it appeared in the 18S rRNA tree with a very long branch and separated from all other taxa, suggesting that its position could be artifactual. A better understanding of its phylogenetic position has been constrained by a lack of molecular markers and the difficulty of obtaining a suitable quantity and quality of DNA from in vitro cultures, as this intracellular parasite cannot be cultured without its host. We isolated and collected spores of C. mesnili and sequenced genomic libraries. Phylogenetic analyses of a newly generated multi-protein data set (22 proteins, 4998 amino acids) and of sequences from the 18S rRNA gene both placed C. mesnili within the Ichthyophonida sub-clade of Ichthyosporea, as sister-taxon to Abeoforma whisleri and Pirum gemmata. Our study highlights the utility of metagenomic approaches for obtaining genomic information from intracellular parasites and for more accurate phylogenetic placement in evolutionary studies
