Additional file 1: Figure S1. of Bacterial diversity of wild-caught Lutzomyia longipalpis (a vector of zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil) under distinct physiological conditions by metagenomics analysis

Parasite numbers in infected L. longipalpis (3 to 7 days after the infective blood meal). Flies were infected by membrane feeding; the midguts were dissected on the indicated days post-feeding. The parasite densities varied according to the post-infection day showing a median of 18,450 parasites on the 3rd day and 9650 on the 7th day. (PNG 743 kb)
