The generic affiliation of protozoans described as Sinuolina gilsoni Debaisieux, 1925 is discussed. The species is transferred to the genus Sphaerospora Thélohan, 1892 and regarded as synonymous with Sinuolina gilsoni Debaisieux, 1925; Sphaerospora anguillae Wierzbicka, 1986; and Hoferellus gilsoni (Debaisieux, 1925) Lom, Dykova, 1989. In addition, the parasites Sphaerospora reichenowi Jacob, 1953 and S. sphaerocapsularae Wierzbicka, 1986 are shown to be separate species.
