Maintenance of circulating hemocytes in larval Lepidoptera has been attributed to both mitosis of hemocytes already in circulation and the release of hemocytes from hematopoietic organs. In this study, we compared hematopoiesis in the noctuids Pseudoplusia includens and Spodoptera frugiperda. For both species, hemocyte densities per microl of blood increased with instar. Differential hemocyte counts indicated that plasmatocytes were the most abundant hemocyte type during early instars but… CONTINUE READING
