The life cycle of an intraerythrocytic hemogregarine, Hepatozoon clamatae, was studied in green frogs (Rana clamitans melanota), bullfrogs (Rana catesbeiana), northern leopard frogs (Rana pipiens), and in the mosquito, Culex territans. Gametogenesis, fertilization, and sporogony occurred within cells of the Malpighian tubules of laboratory-reared Cx. territans that had fed on naturally infected frogs. Mature oocysts containing hundreds of sporocysts were observed in mosquitoes 30 days… CONTINUE READING
