The surface structures of larvae of Wuchereria bancrofti from Liberia were examined by scanning electron microscopy. For this study microfilariae from man, first-stage, second-stage, and third-stage larvae from the vector Aedes aegypti, and fourth-stage larvae from the experimental rodent hosts Mastomys natalensis and Meriones unguiculatus were available. From these larvae the structure of the anterior ends, the cuticle in the midbody regions, and the posterior ends are presented. As an obvious… CONTINUE READING
