The developmental biology (parasite establishment, migration, and differentiation) of Brazilian strains of Endotrypanum are reported for 3 sand fly species: Lutzomyia longipalpis Lutz & Neiva, L. shannoni Dyar, and Phlebotomus papatasi Scopoli. Laboratory-reared sand flies were infected by feeding on a promastigote suspension through a chick-skin membrane. Infections within the insect gut were examined at various times after feeding by staining fresh and fixed specimens. Development of… Expand
