have they maintained the same level of activity in this time? have you tried any attractants/repellents at this stage? be great to see results of grouping experiments… keep us posted. :)

Yes I shot these, the mag is just 200x. I've not seen any sign of grouping yet and they've been around for several weeks. I've read a couple of papers that suggest you can get plasmodia in as little as nine days so I'm guessing something's missing, I've just transferred some of them onto oatmeal agar to see if that kick starts them. If get anything from that I'll start setting up agar slides so I can film the grouping process.

Did you shoot this Ian? I'm curious about the magnification and at what point they decide to group?
