The midgut of female Anophelinae and Culicinae comprises a narrow anterior (A-part) and a wide posterior part (P-part, stomach). Both are lined by a singlelayered epithelium, and in both parts regenerative cells are found between the epithelial cells. “Clear cells”, possibly with an endocrine function, are only found in the P-part. The epithelial cells of the mosquito species investigated display close ultrastructural similarities. No significant differences are found between Anopheles gambiae… CONTINUE READING
