Histological and histochemical studies on the male accessory glands of culicine mosquitoes



Histological and histochemical studies on the male accessory glands of culicine mosquitoes



Entomon 1(2): 101-110



The results are presented of studies on the development, histology and histochemistry of the male accessory glands in Aedes aegypti (L.) and Culex pipiens fatigans Wied. The paired accessory glands grow rapidly in the pupal stage and reach their full size 2 days after adult emergence. The glands have an outer layer of muscles and in inner layer of simple columnar secretory cells. In Culex, the gland has a central lumen in the pupal stage, but in Aedes it is partly filled with cells.
