Presence of Thelohania solenopsae and Vairimorpha invictae in South American populations of Solenopsis invicta
Florida Entomologist 87 (4), 625-627
Abstract: Thelohania solenopsae - and Vairimorpha invictae -infected Solenopsis invicta from South America were genotyped at the Gp-9 locus to determine their social form. Unlike counterparts in the United States, monogyne nests are infected with both microsporidia species in South America.
