Histological, cellular, and humoral responses of an isopod, Armadillidium vulgare to an acanthocephalan, Plagiorhynchus (Prosthorhynchus) formosus van Cleave, 1918



Histological, cellular, and humoral responses of an isopod, Armadillidium vulgare to an acanthocephalan, Plagiorhynchus (Prosthorhynchus) formosus van Cleave, 1918



Dissertation Abstracts International 32B(11): 6734-6735



None of about 500 adult Armadillidium vulgare was found to be naturally infected with Plagiorhynchus formosus. 45 of 65 juveniles and 5 of 54 adults of A. vulgare were experimentally infected. In adults, parasites were always surrounded by haemocytes and some were partially or entirely melanized. The gut morphology of A. vulgare was described. Infection did not result in changes in haemocrit values, total haemocytes or proportions of the 3 types of haemocyte.
