The object in blood smear (Image challenge 11) is identified as Microfilaria of Brugia timori, which are sheathed and measure on average 310 µm in stained blood smears and 340 µm in 2% formalin. Microfilaria of B. timori differ from B. malayi by a having a longer cephalic space, a sheath that does not stain with Giemsa, and a larger number of single-file nuclei towards the tail. Microfilariae circulate in the blood.
