The midbody regions of female worms of six Onchocerca species (O. flexuosa, O. tarsicola, O. lienalis, O. gutturosa, O. armillata, O. gibsoni) were studied by transmission electron microscopy. The cuticular layering was rather similar in all species with the ridges built up by the cortical layers and the inner cuticular striations by the median or basal layers. Differences in the epicuticular morphology were considerable. O.flexuosa and O. lienalis had a thin epicuticle without protuberances… CONTINUE READING
