>I have been trying hard by surfing through internet to find out the

>(............) and Vairimorpha imperfecta (...................).

Canning, E.U.; Curry, A.; Cheney, S.; Lafranchi-Tristem, N.J.; 
M.A. (1999) Vairimorpha imperfecta n. sp., a microsporidian 
an abortive octosporous sporogony in Plutella xylostella L.
(Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae). Parasitology 119(3): 273-286.

Maddox, J.V.; Baker, M.D.; Jeffords, M.R.; Kuras, M.; Linde, A.:
McManus, M.L. 1999. Nosema Portugal, N.S.P., isolated from gypsy moth
(Lymantria dispar L.) collected in Portugal, Journal of Invertebrate
Pathology. 73: 1-14.

I found both of these by simply using the organism names as queries
with the Google search engine.
