Starvation caused drastic reduction in total haemocyte count (THC) on day 4 in adults of both the sex of Dysdercus Koenigii. Starvation also significantly affected the differential haemocyte count (DHC). In the present insect mainly five types of haemocytes are reported for example Prohaemocytes (PRs), Plasmatocytes (PLs), Granulocytes (GRs), Adipohaemocytes (ADs) and Oenocytes (OEs). One type Vermicytes (VEs) is also reported but it is found during some stages of life of insect. Starvation caused drastic decrease in PLs population on day 4, but increase in population of ADs and OEs were noticed on the same day. Starvation also induced vacuole formation and degeneration in PRs, PLs, and GRs.
The genus Krimi was established by Burt in 1944 with its type species K. chrysocolaptis,from Chrysocolaptis guttacristatus stricklandi,in Ceylon. Nine specimens of Cestode parasites were collected from the intestine of Gallus gallus domesticus. The present cestode have 55-60 number of strobilla; scolex large, rectangular in shape;rostellar sac large, extends up to the middle of the scolex; 18rostellarhooks; testes 25 to 30in numbers; cirrus pouch medium, oval; ovary is bilobed,each lobe with 7-8 acini;ootype small, oval; gravid proglottids large, broaderthan long.
