Investigations on the midgut caeca of mosquito larvae-I. Fine structure.

Abstract

Four types of cells can be distinguished in the epithelium of the caeca of three species of mosquito larvae. Specialized cells secreting a 160nm caecal membrane occur either near the opening of the caeca into the midgut (Aedes, Anopheles) or in the posterior half of the caeca (Culex). The presence of chitin could be demonstrated in this membrane with wheat… (More)
