Acari Lardoglyphus konoi nervous system histology morphology


The nervous system of adult Lardoglyphus konoi is described from paraffin, serial sections cut at six microns thickness and viewed under immersion lens. The nervous system consists of the supra and sub oesophageal ganglia, circum oesophageal connectives, the ventral ganglia, and a few nerves. The nervous system is not so much centralised and fused as reported in other mites. In the ventral chain at least five separate ganglionic aggregations are distinguishable. The nervous system is compared with that of other Chelicerates.
