Abstract: Nosemosis, which is caused by two microsporidian species, Nosema apis and Nosema cerenae, is a major disease of the honeybee Apis mellifera. Numerous studies have been conducted on N. ceranae since its first discovery in A. mellifera in 2006. One of the most popular research topics in this area is the comparison of N. apis and N. cerenae. This paper reviews literature published in the last ten years with the aim of providing a comprehensive review of comparative studies of these species, including their prevalence, morphology, genomes and virulence. Future research topics in this area are also discussed. This review provides an important reference for the study of microsporidia and the prevention and treatment of nosemosis.
