The sexual life cycle of the hemogregarine Hepatozoon mocassini was studied in Aedes aegypti, an experimental mosquito host, using transmission electron microscopy. Gamonts were observed leaving the host snake erythrocyte as early as 30 min after mosquitoes ingested infected blood, and some gamonts had penetrated the gut epithelial cells by this time. Six hours post-feeding, gamonts were identified within cells of the abdominal fat body. Twenty-four hours post-feeding, gamonts were often… CONTINUE READING
