Histochemical investigations showed that Romanoinermis culicivorax accumulates storage products, primarily in the trophosome, from the fourth day of parasitic development onwards. Lipids constitute the predominant storage metabolite, glycogen the next most abundant, and proteins quantitatively only a minor storage product. Analytical studies showed that sterols (free and bound forms) constitute the greatest proportion of trophosomal lipids with triacylglycerol and phospholipids also present. Twelve proteins, one glycoprotein but no lipoprotein fractions were identified from the trophosome.
