Scanning electron microscopy of the eggs of Aedes scapularis from southern South America.

The eggs of Aedes scapularis analyzed by scanning electron microscopy are black and elliptical in outline, measuring approximately 620.4 +/- 16.74 microm long and 163.7 +/- 16.90 microm (n = 10) wide, with an egg index (length/width ratio) of 3.79. The anterior extremity tapered abruptly from a width of 51.6 microm, while such tapering was more gradual at… CONTINUE READING
