The fine structure of the hemogregarine Hemolivia stellata Petit, Landau, Baccam and Lainson, 1990 developmental stages in the cane toad Bufo marinus L. and the vector tick Amblyomma rotondatum Koch, 1844 are described. In the liver of the toad, merozoites bound by a pellicle were located free and in the cytoplasm, and young and encased mature polynucleated meronts were located in a parasitophorous vacuole (PV). Premature gametocytes in the erythrocytes were bound by a bilayered membranous wall… CONTINUE READING
