Ehrlichia ruminantium (formerly Cowdria ruminantium). Order Rickettsiales, Family Anaplasmataceae. • Small, Gram negative, pleomorphic coccus, and obligate. caused by the ehrlichial rickettsia Ehrlichia ruminantium (formerly Cowdria ruminantium), heartwater is transmitted from reservoir wildlife hosts (e.g., wildebeest). E. ruminantium is best demonstrated in fixed sections stained with Giemsa. It resembles a Gram-negative coccus, the colour varying from lilac purple.
