About Romanomermis culicivorax
The nematode Romanomermis culicivorax is an entomopathogenic parasite that invades larvae of various mosquito species killing these when emerging at the J4 stage. R. culicivorax is being tested as a biological pest control to fight malaria. Although only distantly related to C. elegans it has proved to be a particularly amenable study object for analyzing embryogenesis.
