The aquatic oomycete fungus Leptolegnia chapmanii Seymour is pathogenic to mosquito larvae, but it has been little studied since it was first isolated. Although studies have been performed on different biological isolates of L. chapmanii around the world, they were made on zoospores and a very little or even nothing is known about the sexual stage (oogonia and oospores), which allows L. chapmanii to remain in the environment when conditions are not favorable. The main objective of this study… CONTINUE READING
