  • The Malpighian tubules of the cockroaches Archimandrita tessellata and Lucihormetica verrucosa were infected with stages of unicellular parasites. Plasmodial stages occurred freely in the lumen and attached to the epithelium of the Malpighian tubules. Vegetative plasmodia contain few or numerous nuclei, while the sporogenic plasmodia (pansporoblasts) have vegetative nuclei in their cytoplasm and in addition endogenously form uninucleate spores. New species of the genus Nephridiophaga were… CONTINUE READING
