Fine structure of the vagina, accessory glands, uterus, oviducts and Gene's organ in the unfed tick, Ornithodoros (Pavlovskyella) erraticus (Ixodoidea: Argasidae)



Fine structure of the vagina, accessory glands, uterus, oviducts and Gene's organ in the unfed tick, Ornithodoros (Pavlovskyella) erraticus (Ixodoidea: Argasidae)



Experimental & Applied Acarology 4(2): 95-108



The fine structure of the reproductive system of the unfed female of Ornithodoros erraticus is described. The vagina consisting of vestibular and cervical regions is formed of a single epithelial layer lined with cuticle and surrounded by muscle layers. A pair of tubular accessory glands opening at the junction of the 2 vaginal regions consists of a layer of microvillate columnar cells containing rough endoplasmic reticulum.
