The present hypopi were identified as H propus, based on the dimensions of the mite, together with the distinct typical coxal apodemes in the anterior part.
The hypopi have evolved morphological adaptations, such as attachment devices, to aid in phoresy.
The hypopi of the Hemisarcoptes cooremani (Acari: Hemisarcoptidae), formerly regarded as a phoretic species of the beetle Chilocorus cacti, has been shown to acquire fluids from the hemolymph of its beetle host suggesting a transition between a phoretic and a truly parasitic association (Houck & Cohen 1995).
Elzinga and Broce (1988) mentioned that house flies (Diptera: Muscidae) were so burdened with histiostomatid hypopi that they were unable to fly or exhibit normal behavior.
This would involve taking preventative action against hypopi leaping from one culture vial to another.
Hypopi were mounted on the microscopic slides permanently in Hoyer's medium.
The immobile, immature hypopi were individually encapsulated, mostly in adipose tissue, and evoked only a mild inflammatory infiltration of predominately macrophages with some heterophilic granulocytes.
