Argas persicus nymph spiracle morphology

Abstract

The morphology of the nymphal spiracle of Argas persicus (Oken) is described in an advanced developmental state during the moult. This modification of the ’simple type’ of tracheal/spiracular moulting is compared with the ’elateroid type’ of the Ixodidae.
