Sexual stages in salivary exudate. Trypanosomes in the salivary probe of a sequentially infected fly (Glossina pallidipes) 31 days after infection with 1738G and 13 days after infection with F1R1. Cells shown have the typical morphology of a haploid gamete (g) and a trypanosome in meiosis I (m). Both trypanosomes were red fluorescent, i.e. F1R1. From left to right, brightfield, DAPI and merge.
