Abstract

Apparently both the large round and large fusiform gametocytes of L. simondi seen in the dried giemsa-stained blood smears are mature. Some evidence of the maturation process of both the round and elongate macrogametocytes was seen as well as maturation and exflagellation of both the round and elongate microgametocytes.
