When eggs of Monieza expansa are fed to galumnid mites, the onchospheres emerge in the intestine and migrate to the body cavity. Here they undergo metamorphosis and develop into cysticercoids. The dissection of mites, at various intervals after exposure, has yielded a successive series of developmental stages. Protocols of the experiments and photographs of living larvae are presented. These results demonstrate that mites serve as intermediate hosts of Moniezia , and probably also of other… CONTINUE READING
