Epidemiology of bancroftian filariasis in Madagascar. II. Studies on Wuchereria vauceli Galliard, 1959 and comparative morphological study of the Malagasy and Comores strains of Wuchereria bancrofti Cobbold, 1877



Epidemiology of bancroftian filariasis in Madagascar. II. Studies on Wuchereria vauceli Galliard, 1959 and comparative morphological study of the Malagasy and Comores strains of Wuchereria bancrofti Cobbold, 1877



Cahiers ORSTOM, Serie Entomologie Medicale et Parasitologie 10(3): 193-205



Observations begun in 1966 in Madagascar on the characteristics of microfilariae found in man and infective larvae found in man-biting mosquitos indicated that Wuchereria bancrofti is the only filaria that infects man there. It is suggested that the names W. bancrofti var. vauceli, proposed in 1955 for microfilariae seen in man in eastern Madagascar, and W. vauceli, used in 1959, have no taxonomic validity.
