Cruzi ancestor. 2. The Evolution ofTrypanosoma rangeli The taxonomic and evolutionary status of T. rangeli has long been the subject of debate (Hoare, 1972; D'Alessandro and Saravia, 1992; Taverne, 1998; Stevens and Gibson, 1999). Unlike T. cruzi, T. rangeli produces only a transient and non-pathological infection in humans and other mammals such as opossums, but is frequently pathogenic to its triatomine bug vectors. In mammalian hosts T. rangeli multiplies as trypomastigotes in the bloodstream and it is not clear if tissue forms are normally produced [in the laboratory, amastigote-like forms of T.

Indeed, although the overall level of genetic diversity within the T. cruzi clade may not be as great as that observed in the T. brucei clade, the range of genetically distinct, specialist species present suggests a number of distinct evolutionary pathways within the group. This may eventually warrant recognition of more than one taxonomic division within the T. eruzi clade. 2. p. 22), T. rangeli appears to have several synonyms, which are probably host-range variants.
