Young asexual stages are initially polar in the erythrocyte but with maturation, move to a lateral position. The larger meronts may slightly enlarge the erythrocyte but most asexual stages do not. Conspicuous greenish-black pigment granules are located in a distinct vacuole.

The largest schizonts contain 30-40 nuclei.

In gametocytes at first polar in the erythrocyte but gradually move in the lateral position. In the end, they assume a smooth, curved cylindrical shape with evenly rounded ends. Pigment is scattered or concentrated around a prominent vacuole, which developed slowly, as Mature gametocytes. Mature gametocytes sometimes to increase the number of red blood cells.

Mature male parasites is measured 11.8 x 4.0 µm range: 9.6 x 4.2 - 13.2 x 3.6 µm and women 13.5 x 4.5 micrometers range: 12.0 x 4.5 - 15.0 x 4.8 µm.
