Five types of haemocytes were detected in the haemolymph ofAedes albopictus larva. Their comparison with the cells growing in the larval cell cultures of this mosquito indicated that the prohaemocytes, two types of podocytes, plasmatocytes and spherules of larval haemolymph correspond with the types A, B and C epithelial-like cells, type A fibroblast-like cells and vacuolated round cells in the culture respectively.
