A dose-mortality technique was used to compare the pathogenicity ofNosema whitei for 4 stored products pests.Tribolium castaneum, T. confusum andOryzaephilus surinamensis were similar in susceptibility, whileT. anaphe was at least 100 times more susceptible. A possible explanation for this difference is thatT. anaphe has a much longer developmental time (28 days at 25°C) than the other 3 species (20 days at 25°C). The host range was studied in another 8 species from 2 orders.T. brevicornis, T… Expand

Some pathogenic effects of a species ofPleistophora [Protozoa, Microsporida] forAgrotis exclamationis and other noctuids
TLDR
Larvae of noctuids were inoculatedper os with spores of a species ofPleistophora isolated from Agrotis exclamationis, except that is was non-infective for the typehost A. segetum, probably insufficiently pathogenic for use in the biological control of noCTuids. Expand
Occurrence of Nosema oryzaephili in Cryptolestes ferrugineus and transfer to the genus Paranosema.
TLDR
A microsporidium that closely resembles Paranosema species at the level of the light microscope was isolated from the rusty grain beetle, Cryptolestes ferrugineus, which is the first report of a microsporaidial infection in this species. Expand

Morphology, development, and pathogenicity of Nosema oryzaephili n. sp. in Oryzaephilus surinamensis and its host range among granivorous insects
Abstract A virulent microsporidan, Nosema oryzaephili n. sp., is described from the sawtoothed grain beetle, Oryzaephilus surinamensis . Mean dimensions of batches of fresh spores were 4.1–4.8 byExpand
Nosema whitei, a microsporidan pathogen of some species of Tribolium: I. Morphology, life cycle, and generation time
TLDR
Host species, dose, and temperature were all found to affect the generation time, which ranged from 8 to 17 days, and the predominant schizogonic stages were mononuclear and binuclear although schizonts with up to 5 nuclei were seen. Expand
Nosema whitei, a microsporidan pathogen of some species ofTribolium
TLDR
Adults, emerging fromNosema free larvae, became infected only when exposed to a very high dose (2×1010 spores/g for 14 days from the day of emergence) and infected larvae were treated for 1 hr at 45°C in an attempt to cure the infection. Expand
Observations on the susceptibility of some insect to Nosema (Microsporidia: Sporozoa).
TLDR
The present study has undertaken successfully to establish a microsporidian parasite, Nosema, in a group of insects which do not normally represent satisfactory host species, and to delimit and elucidate some of the aspects of host susceptibility concerning this parasite and its insect hosts.

Nosema whitei, a microsporidan pathogen of some species of Tribolium: III. Effect on T. castaneum☆☆☆
TLDR
In the final experiment infection was shown to reduce adult fecundity, though the viability of the eggs was not affected and no trans-ovum transmission of infection occurred. Expand
Production of Insect Juvenile Hormone by the Microsporidian Parasite Nosema
TLDR
It is found that the larger size of such infected beetle larvæ is a result of more rapid growth and of supernumerary moults. Expand
