Attempts to culture the parasitic stage of Dermatobia hominis (L. Jr.) in vitro (Diptera: Cuterebridae)



Attempts to culture the parasitic stage of Dermatobia hominis (L. Jr.) in vitro (Diptera: Cuterebridae)



Journal of Parasitology 73(5): 907-909



Larvae of Dermatobia hominis were cultured in vitro in a semidefined liquid medium. First-instar larvae grew well up to 44 days, with 29.1% moulting in an average of 8.62 days. Two larvae reached the 3rd instar after the second moult but lived only 1 and 18 days, respectively. The increase in size, as measured in 4 larvae, was about 10-fold. Second- and 3rd-instar larvae, obtained from the skin of cattle, survived and grew in the medium for up to 2 months.
