AbstractSince 2012, frequent outbreaks of Hematodinium diseases have significantly impacted sustainable culture of marine crabs Portunus trituberculatus in the coastal areas of Shandong Peninsula. The mechanisms of the Hematodinium parasite epizootics in polyculture pond systems remain to be explored and alternate crustacean hosts are speculated to play important roles in transmission and epizootiology of the disease. To investigate their possible role in transmission, the common wild mudflat crabs Helice tientsinensis were sampled from the waterway connecting to polyculture ponds in Huangdao, Qingdao, China and diagnosed for Hematodinium infection. Hematodinium infection was found in H. tientsinensis collected in the waterway from April-November 2018, with a prevalence of 5.8-31.7%. In addition, 23.1% of H. tientsinensis sampled from the adjacent polyculture pond were infected during the peak of the Hematodinium epizootic in July. Amoeboid trophonts or prespores were observed in the hemolymph of the Hematodinium-infected crabs and histopathological changes were observed in major organs (e.g. hepatopancreas, heart, gill and muscle). The ITS1 rRNA of Hematodinium sp. infecting H. tientsinensis shared 99-100% similarity to isolates infecting P. trituberculatus and Penaeus monodon in local polyculture ponds, and are included in a monophylogenetic Glade, Hematodinium perezi genotype II, in the phylogenetic tree. The results further showed that this generalist parasite was infecting various types of marine crustaceans in the coastal waters of China, and that mudflat crabs H. tientsinensis may serve as an important alternate host during epizootics of Hematodinium parasites in the polyculture system.
