FISH detection of Wolbachia in AsiaII7 whitefly.

Wolbachia has two distributions in 3rd instar AsiaII7 nymphs randomly selected from the Eretmocerus rearing cages. Top panels (A, B): in the scattered pattern, Wolbachia was found both in the ovary (OV) and haemolymph (H) of whitefly; bottom panels (C, D): in the confined pattern, Wolbachia was only found in the ovary (OV) of whitefly. Left panels (A, C): fluorescence in dark field; right panels (B, D): fluorescence in bright field.
