Queenlessness and reproductive differentiation in ophthalmopone hottentota

, : Queenlessness and reproductive differentiation in ophthalmopone hottentota. South African Journal of Zoology 20(4): 268

The reproductive activity of ants in two colonies of Ophthalmopone hottentota was determined by dissecting their ovaries and examining their spermathecae. Queens are absent. There are a number of inseminated workers in each colony, and all these had active ovaries. Thus, the strict association between ovarian activity and insemination was confirmed for this species.

The efficacy of mefloquine for the treatment of cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania braziliensis was evaluated in an endemic area in Brazil. Mefloquine has a prolonged half-life, is less toxic and is easier to administrate than pentavalen...
