Abstract

An agar plating technique was used to determine the number of amastigotes ingested by fed on papules on caused by and on lesions on caused by . The technique involved homogenizing sand flies after bloodfeeding on the infected animals and spreading the homogenate over the surface of agar plates. A great variation in the number of amastigotes ingested by individual sand flies was demonstrated. Not all amastigotes ingested developed anterior stomodeal infections.
