Neonate Simulium females from an endemic area of human and bovine onchocerciasis in North Cameroon were injected intrathoracically in one set of experiments with microfilariae (mff) of O. dukei and in another with mff of O. ochengi. O. dukei developed to infective 3rd-stage larvae: 148 third-stage larvae (28.1% of injected mff) were recovered in S. hargreavesi, 7 (10.4% of injected mff) in S. vorax, and 12 (1.3%) in S. damnosum s.l.
