In this work we describe the internal morphology of the female reproductive system of the cayenne tick Amblyomma cajennense.

This ovary consists of a single tube, in which a large number of oocytes develop asynchronously, thus accompanying the processes of yolk deposition in the oocytes. The oocytes were classified into stages that varied from I to V, according to: cytoplasm appearance, presence of the… CONTINUE READING
