  • The hemocytes of Leiobunum limbatum, Mitopus morio, and Opilio ravennae number from about 8,000 (juveniles) to 41,000 (pregnant females) per microliter of hemolymph. Five different types of hemocytes occur in all three species and both sexes. According to their ultrastructural appearance and their similarities to other arthropod hemocytes these five types are designated as prohemocyte, plasmatocyte, granulocyte, coagulocyte, and spherulocyte. From the ultrastructural point of view the… CONTINUE READING
