In this study two further axenic Giardia isolates obtained from a silvery marmoset Callithrix argentata (Callithricidae) and a red-bellied guenon Cercopithecus erythrogaster (Cercopithecidae) are described. Biological features of the new primate Giardia isolates, such as morphometry of trophozoites, generation time and procedure of axenic isolation are presented.

KEY WORDS: Giardia, Callithrix argentata, Cercopithecus erythrogaster, primates, axenic culture
