Functional anatomy of the hypopharynx and the salivary pump in the feeding apparatus of the assassin bug Rhodnius prolixus (Reduviidae, Heteroptera)
Focussing on the blood-feeding reduviid Rhodnius prolixus, we investigated the structure and function of the hypopharynx in (1) conducting the saliva towards the mouthparts and (2) bringing togetherExpand

Recovery of adult stages and microfilaraemia after low dose inoculation of third stage larvae of Litomosoides carinii in Sigmodon hispidus.
Because of the negative binomial distribution of filarial third stage larvae (L3) in their vectors, under natural conditions only a few are usually transferred per bite. After an inoculation of 5 L3Expand
