Abstract

SUMMARY: By the use of Freund's complete adjuvant, high-titre agglutinating antisera were prepared to nine trypanosomatids: (Anopheles strain), (Culex strain, Wallace isolate), (Culex strain, Nöller isolate), sp. from sp. from , and . The three and are immunologically similar according to agglutination tests. sp. from Euryophthalmus and are distinct from each other and from . The two Leptomonas species are distinct from each other and are not closely related immunologically to Crithidia species. The trypanosomatids tested here are not separable into groups according to original host (hemiptera or diptera).
