The feeding mechanism of intracellular muscle larvae, Trichinella nativa Britov et Boev, 1972 and T. pseudospiralis Garkavi, 1972.

We confirmed, with the electron microscope, that Trichinella larvae feed directly on the host tissue during their initial development. They suck, by means of a stylet acting as a piston, all components of the muscle cell which develops into a nurse cell, into their oral cavity. The stylet is controlled by a muscle retractor. At day 10 p.i., fragments of myofilaments and glycogen are present in the oesophagus of the larva of T. nativa, mitochondria occur in it at day 20 p.i. During the larval growth of T. pseudospiralis, remnants of a contractile material are present in the digestive system. The composition of the food ingested by the larva is in agreement...

Distribution of lyo- and desmo-glycogen in relation to growth and maturity of proglottids of Moniezia benedeni.

Lyo- and desmo-glycogen were estimated in relation to growth and maturity of proglottids of a cestode, Moniezia benedeni. Total and lyo-glycogen show an increasing trend from immature to mature region (i.e., from region 1 to 6) and the increased level seen in the 6th region is maintained up to the 9th region with a fall in the 10th (gravid) region. These results indicate that mature proglottids store more carbohydrate than immature and gravid proglottids. Desmo-glycogen showed no variation in different regions of the strobila. The percentage of lyo-glycogen to total carbohydrate reveals that most of the carbohydrate (85-93%) is stored in a labile form.

Demodex flagellurus sp. n. (Acari: Demodicidae) from the preputial and clitoral glands of the house mouse, Mus musculus L.

V Bukva

Folia Parasitologica 32[1] 73 (1985)

An extremely large new demodicid, Demodex flagellurus sp. n., is described in all stages of its life cycle from the house mouse, Mus musculus L. Its habitat, the preputial and clitoral glands, is reported as new for demodicid mites. Adaptations to habitat, host transfer, and the potential of this species as a useful model in experimental studies on demodicid biology are discussed.

The effects of temperature, relative humidity and host factors on the attachment and survival of Boophilus decoloratus and Boophilus geigyi larvae to skin slices.

A Amoo, O O Dipeolu

Folia Parasitologica 32[1] 83-88 (1985)

Attachment and survival of Boophilus decoloratus and B. geigyi larvae were examined using skin slices from cattle, sheep and goats. Results indicate that B. decoloratus has a wider range of temperature (24-40 degrees C) at which more than 50% of larvae would attach to bovine skin, while B. geigyi has a narrower range (24-30 degrees C). The larvae of both species had two peaks of attachment--the 4th and 20th hour, the value for the second peak being greater than the first. The influence of humidity on larval attachment was only apparent where the temperature was high, and in such cases more than 70% of B. decoloratus larvae attached, while less than...
