The spermatheca is present in all orders of insect and generally, there is one spermatheca per individual, although in Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) and representatives of Culicidae and Caliphoridae (Diptera) have been reported multiple spermathecae with different morphologies (Pascini and Martins, 2017).

La estimacion de una tasa de 529/100 000 en este estudio, sugiere que la prevalencia en donantes de sangre es elevada y superior a la tasa nacional estimada para este mismo periodo, lo cual se podria explicarse por donaciones de reposicion como ya se menciono, mecanismos laxos de seleccion de donantes, lo cual podria sugerir que existe una elevada prevalencia de Chagas en esta region, considerando que alli se han reportado casos de infeccion humana (19), asi mismo, hay evidencia de circulacion en la zona, de algunas especies del vector para la enfermedad de chagas (Rhodnius prolixus, Pastrongylus geniculatus y Pastrongylus pictipes) (20).

Effect of Aqueous and Oil-based Formulations of 13 Native Isolates of Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota) on Rhodnius prolixus (Triatominae) under Experimental Conditions
From 2002-2010, we isolated the uncharacterized clones from humans; triatomine vectors (Panstrongylus geniculatus, Rhodnius prolixus, and Triatoma venosa insects); and sylvatic mammalian hosts (Dasypus spp.
On a broader level, a novel class of aquaporins variously referred to as Rhodnius prolixus integral protein-like channels (RPIPs), Lygus hesperus integral protein-like channels (LHIPs), or AQP4/5 clade C channels (Drake et al., 2010, 2015; Wallace et al., 2012; Benoit et al., 2014a, b; Fabrick et al., 2014; Goto et al., 2015), have recently been classified as entomoglyceroporins (Eglp), since they specifically evolved to become the major glycerol transporters in insects (Finn et al., 2015).
