Default Gene prediction - new species - augustus

I am new to the bioinformatics field and I already tried getting my gene prediction with busco+augustus, scipio(merged proteins from cryptodb)+augustus but the results weren't corresponding to the expectations and specifics of the organism - lots of introns.

The organism is cryptosporidium proliferans.
I've only got the assembly from Mira. Is it possible to use coding and transcript sequences from close species (cryptosporidium muris - cryptodb files) to get hints and then reliable gene prediction?

I am not sure how to train augustus right and then get good results. Or is there a better software you'd recommend?
