Surface characteristics of microfilariae (mf) and developing stages of B. pahangi in A. subalbatus were assayed using fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugated lectins. The following lectins were used: wheat germ agglutinins, lentil agglutinins, Helix aspersa agglutinins, Concanavalin A agglutinins, kidney bean agglutinins, asparagus pea agglutinins and peanut agglutinins. It was observed that developing stages of B. pahangi in the mosquito show dynamic surface carbohydrate characteristics.
